Carbon Nanotube Fibers Make Superior Links to Brain

Carbon Nanotube Fibers Make Superior Links to Brain | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
New experiments at Rice demonstrated the biocompatible fibers are ideal candidates for small, safe electrodes that interact with the brain’s neuronal system, according to the researchers. They could replace much larger electrodes currently used in devices for deep brain stimulation therapies in Parkinson’s disease patients.
