Abstract

Graphene-substrate-promoted human neural stem cell adhesion and its differentiation into neurons is reported. Microarray studies were performed to explore plausible explanation for this effect. Further, an electrical stimulation on differentiated cells via graphene electrodes is demonstrated.
