Surface patterning for controlled growth of neuronal cells

Electrospun nanofiber mats belong to the often examined substrates for tissue engineering, cell growth promotion or generally as an orientation for growth of diverse cells and small organisms, such as algae. A completely different approach was recently published: A UV laser lithography method which was used to design and produce plain multi-electrode arrays could also be used for surface patterning to pave ways for growth of neuronal cells.
