Caption: Chip for nerve cell research. This multi-electrode chip can record the signals of nervous tissue or nerve cells growing on it as well as stimulating nerve responses by applying a small current. By using this, the formation of nerve networks can be observed which helps to find the causes of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. Nerve cells from the snail Lymnaea stagnalis were successfully grown on chips like this in 2001.
