The measurment of neuronal chemical activity is subject to intense research for a better understanding of neurodegenerative diseases. With new advances in microelectronics and microfluidics, as well as new microfabrication technologies, it is now possible to design microelectronic circuits that can interface with biological fluids to measure the intra-neuronal electrical activity or molecular exchange (neurotransmitters). Thus, we propose in this research project to design an array of potentiostats to measure the concentration change between neurons at the nanoscale.
