Femtosecond Laser Welds Neurons In Vitro

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
An experimental method involving ultrashort laser pulses has been used to connect neurons in vitro. The technique holds promise for the repair of severed nerves. Researchers from the University of Alberta used a femtosecond laser to bond a neuronal axon and a neuronal soma. Neurons are nervous system cells responsible for transferring information between the brain and the rest of the body. Nir Katchinskiy and other electrical engineering researchers from the University of Alberta used a femtosecond laser system to “weld” neurons. Courtesy of UAlberta Engineering.
