Two Papers By Dr Kasia Krukiewicz Published in Electrochemica Acta on Novel Electroactive Materials

Advances in neural interface technologies have sought to identify electroactive materials that are able to translate neural depolarisation events into digital signals or modulate neural firing through ionic or electrical stimulation with greater efficiency. An ideal material for neural recording and/or stimulation should possess low electrical impedance coupled with a high cathodic charge storage capacity (CSCC), charge injection capacity (CIC) and electroactive surface area (ESA), as well as optimal mechanical biomimicry. In these studies, we present the robustness of electrodeposited poly (3, 4-ethylenedioxypyrrole) and self-supporting CNT films as neural interface materials.
