Silk fibroin (SF) is a natural biomaterial with huge potential for use as a biofunctional interface in electronic devices that aim to stimulate and control neural network activity and peripheral nerve repair. SF films support the adherence and growth of peripheral sensory neurons, preserve neuronal functionalities, and can be funtionalized with trophic factors to promote neurite outgrowth.
