Project reference: PMP003

An intensive research is focusing on neurotransmission in order to understand brain behavior and neurodegenerative diseases which are going to be the 21th century diseases. 

The objective of this research is to design a micro device based on Bio-MEMS in order to artificially modulate neurotransmitter concentration at a local area of brain. This research covers advanced BioMEMS research, bio-microelectronics interface and high sensitivity biosensing techniques based on carbon nanotubes. 

This research is also targeting the development of new Neuron-BioMEMS interface in order to artificially stimulate neurons.
