Neural Interface Biomaterials: Multifunctional Nanobiomaterials for Neural Interfaces (Adv. Funct. Mater. 4/2009)
Neural electrodes are designed to interface with the nervous system and provide control signals for neural prostheses. However, robust and reliable chronic recording and stimulation remains a challenge for neural electrodes. On page 573, Mohammad Reza Abidian and David Martin report a novel method for the fabrication of soft, low impedance, high charge density, and controlled releasing nanobiomaterials that can be applied for neural interfaces using drug loaded nanofibers, 3D conducting polymer nanostructures (PEDOT), and alginate hydrogel.
