Silver and zinc oxide nanomaterials are able to pass through an in vitro blood-brain barrier model in the form of both particles and dissolved ions.
Using a system dubbed μRobotex system, researchers have created a microhouse so small a mite can not fit through the front door. Researchers say the creation pushes forward the frontiers of optical nanotechnologies.
Researchers have developed nanowires that can record the electrical activity of neurons in fine detail. The technology will allow for better investigation as to how the brain works.
Raman spectroscopy techniques allows researchers to take a closer look at the elusive amyloid beta.
Researchers have developed a method of fabricating nanoscale electronic scaffolds that can be injected. The scaffolds can be used to monitor neural activity or promote neurogenesis.
