Carbon Nanotubes and Neuronal Performance

Fabbro A, Toma FM, Cellot G, Prato M and Ballerini L.


The application of nanotechnology to contemporary neuroscience promotes innovative solutions that may be useful for brain and spinal cord repair strategies after damage. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are a novel form of carbon made of rolled layers of graphite. Since their discovery CNTs appeared immediately interesting materials, due to their structure, CNTs are both immensely strong and mechanically flexible. In addition, CNTs exhibit useful properties allowing nanotubes to conduit electrical current between electrochemical.
