Nano-prosthetics developed to repair neural circuitry.

Neurons are continuously exposed to signals generated by the extracellular environment and the senses to drive key biological tasks. This ability has been exploited to engineer interfaces with nanostructures to guide nerve tissue re-growth, using carbon nanotube-based biomaterials to develop novel neuroprosthetic interfaces. Enhancing cell-to-cell communication is crucial in neural circuits’ settings, however, interactions between carbon nanotube prosthetics and the
