Researchers create molecular device that can record and alter cells’ bioelectric fields without creating damage

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Bioelectricity, the current that flows between our cells, is fundamental to our ability to think and talk and walk.

In addition, there is a growing body of evidence that recording and altering the bioelectric fields of cells and tissue plays a vital role in and even potentially fighting diseases like cancer and heart disease.

Now, for the first time, researchers at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering have created a molecular device that can do both: Record and manipulate its surrounding bioelectric field.
