The fusion of engineered materials and biomolecules opens avenues for novel tools for single-cell exploration. The current work encorporates carbon nanotube technology in electrodes for the minimally invasive, long-term stimulation and recording of neurons. The ability to simultaneously monitor electrical potentials from multiple neurons will enable biologists to further elucidate mechanisms of learning, memory and disease.
