A conducting-polymer platform with biodegradable fibers for stimulation and guidance of axonal growth

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A biosynthetic platform composed of a conducting polypyrrole sheet embedded with unidirectional biodegradable polymer fibers is described (see image; scale bar=50 mu m). Such hybrid systems can promote rapid directional nerve growth for neuro-regenerative scaffolds and act as interfaces between the electronic circuitry of medical bionic devices and the nervous system.
