Atom-width graphene sensors could provide unprecedented insights into brain structure and function

PhysOrg2 - 4 hours 13 min ago
Understanding the anatomical structure and function of the brain is a longstanding goal in neuroscience and a top priority of President Obama's brain initiative. Electrical monitoring and stimulation of neuronal signaling is a mainstay technique for studying brain function, while emerging optical techniques—which use photons instead of electrons—are opening new opportunities for visualizing neural network structure and exploring brain functions. Electrical and optical techniques offer distinct and complementary advantages that, if used together, could offer profound benefits for studying the brain at high resolution. Combining these technologies is challenging, however, because conventional metal electrode technologies are too thick (>500 nm) to be transparent to light, making them incompatible with many optical approaches.
