The influence of porous silicon on axonal outgrowth in vitro.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Axonal outgrowth on smooth and porous silicon surfaces was studied in organ culture. The pore size of the silicon substrata varied between 100 and 1500 nm. We found that axons preferred to grow and elongate on porous silicon surfaces only when pores of (150-500 nm) are available.
