Few-walled carbon nanotubes (fwCNTs) with very high electrical conductivity, when used as culture matrix for primary nerve cells from the central nervous system, force the neurons to lower their chloride faster. Mechanistic insights are provided into how fwCNTs exert their powerful impact on nerve cells’ chloride homeostasis, which underlies inhibitory transmission in the central nervous system.
