Abstract

To improve the long-term performance of a neural implant, a nanocarrier-based neural interface is developed by implementing nanomanufacturing technology and multifunctional nanomaterials to provide structural and mechanical properties that mimic brain tissue, sustain the nonfouling property, and prolong the anti-inflammatory ability.
