Nanotubes Trigger Neurons

Abstract:
Researchers at Stanford University have used electrodes made of bundles of multiwalled carbon nanotubes to stimulate rat neurons. The experiment is an advance toward the long-term goal of using neural prosthetics, such as cochlear and retinal implants, to address individual neurons.
