Nanotechnology and Neuroscience: Nano-electronic, Photonic and Mechanical Neuronal Interfacing, Hardback Book

Nanotechnology and Neuroscience: Nano-electronic, Photonic and Mechanical Neuronal Interfacing Hardback

Edited by Massimo De Vittorio, Luigi Martiradonna, John Assad


This book describes the use of modern micro- and nanofabrication technologies to develop improved tools for stimulating and recording electrical activity in neuronal networks.

It provides an overview of the different ways in which the "nano-world" can be beneficial for neuroscientists, including improvement of mechanical adhesion of cells on electrodes, tight-sealed extracellular recordings or intracellular approaches with strongly reduced invasiveness and tools for localized electrical or optical stimulation in optogenetics experiments.

Specific discussion of fabrication strategies is included, to provide a comprehensive guide to develop micro and nanostructured tools for biological applications.

A perspective on integrating these devices with state-of-the-art technologies for large-scale in vitro and in vivo experiments completes the picture of neuronal interfacing with micro- and nanostructures.
