In this section, it is shown that dielectrophoresis can effectively be used to trap cortical rat neurons. The trapping process was found to depend on amplitude and frequency in a nonlinear way. Several aspects were theoretically and experimentally investigated in order to come to a better understanding of the trapping process.
