Micro-/Nano-Technologies and Microelectronics for Neuroscience Research and Applications

Conference paper
Part of the IFMBE Proceedings book series (IFMBE, volume 45)


The brain is probably the least understood organ of our body, in both normal and pathological conditions. In consequence its study requires the development of novel neurotechnologies. Here we report on the development and experimental validation of novel on-chip neurotechnologies for investigating the properties of neural networks and brain tissues in-vitro.
