This application aims to create innovative polymer coatings to improve intracortical microelectrode biocompatibility. Following intracortical microelectrode implantation, an inflammatory response leads to neuronal loss and the formation of a glial scar around the implant. The loss of neurons and the formation of the glial scar lead to diminished recordings of nearby neurons over time. Biomaterial coatings have the potential of mitigating the inflammatory and glial scarring response. However, dru...
