Nano-prosthetics to repair neural circuitry.

Neurons are continuously exposed to signals generated by the extracellular environment at the nanoscale to drive key biological tasks. This ability has been exploited to engineer interfaces with nanostructures with the aim of guiding nerve tissue re-growth.  Carbon nanotube-based biomaterials contribute to the design of many prosthetic devices, with view to developing novel neural interfaces.  Enhancing cell-to-cell communication is crucial
