Magnetic nanoparticles and polymer fiber probes for treating neurological disorders


A group of scientists led by Polina Anikeeva, AMAX Assistant Professor in Materials Science and Engineering, recently developed polymer-based neural probes and magnetic nanoparticles to treat neural disorders like paralysis and Parkinson's by stimulating the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Chi (Alice) Lu, Materials science and engineering student, developed the polymer-based fiber probe that optically triggers nerve cells in vivo and records neural activity. more
