Silk fibroin is investigated as a novel material for fabricating brain-penetrating electrodes with dynamic mechanical properties and the capacity to deliver sensitive therapeutics. Silk coatings are shown to natively reduce some markers of gliosis in vitro, and a further reduction is demonstrated by encapsulation and release of the enzyme chondroitinase ABC.
