Abstract: Many different types of microelectrodes have been developed for use as a direct Brain-Machine Interface (BMI) to chronically record. Unfortunately, the recordings from these microelectrode devices are not consistent and often last for only a few weeks. The loss of these recordings is most likely due to damage to surrounding tissue that results in the formation of non-conductive glial-scar. In conjunction with developing nanostructured electrode surfaces to mimic the extracellular environment, we have also begun to study the effects of novel surface coatings. Preliminary data show that Poloxamer has a positive effect on neuronal survival and is successful in decreasing the proliferation of glial cells.
