Abstract

High-density carbon nanotube (CNT)-coated surfaces are highly neuro-adhesive. When shaped into regular arrays of isolated islands on a non-adhesive support substrate (such as a clean glass), CNTs can function as effective encoring sites for neurons and glia cells for in-vitro applications. Primarily, patterned CNT islands provide a means to form complex, engineered, interconnected neuronal networks with pre-designed geometry via utilizing the self-assembly process of neurons. Depositing these CNT islands onto multielectrode array chip can facilitate both cell anchoring but also electrical interfacing between the electrodes and the neurons.
