Conducting polymers for neural interfaces


Project description

Within the framework of FRIAS, Maria Asplund will continue her work with conducting polymers for neural interfaces. The aim is to move on towards specific applications. Numerous studies explore the versatility of the polymer materials for introducing bioactive species, intricate surface structures and mechanical buffering on metallic electrode surfaces. The ambition here is to pick the most relevant of these ideas to tailor a polymer electrode and prove its usefulness in the real medical situation. The crucial point is to understand if truly soft implants, based on mechanically flexible substrate materials in combination with bioactive soft polymer electrodes is sufficient to allow for long term close contact with the nervous system.
