Unlocking the Possibilities of Artificial Organic Neurons: A Revolutionary Step Towards Mimicking Biological Nerve Cells

Artificial Organic Neurons – Similar to Biological Nerve cells

The ion-tunable, antiambipolarity of mixed ion/electron conducting polymers allows for the creation of biorealistic organic electrochemical neuronal structures.

Researchers at Linkoping University in Sweden have created an artificial organic neuron which closely mimics biological nerve cells. This artificial neuron stimulates natural nerves and is a promising future technology for a variety of medical treatments.

The Laboratory for Organic Electronics (LOE) continues to work on developing increasingly functional artificial nervous cells. A team of scientists, led by Simone Fabiano, demonstrated in 2022 how an artificial organic nerve could be integrated into living carnivorous plants to control the opening of their maw. This synthetic nerve cells met two of the twenty characteristics that distinguish it from a real nerve cell.
