We describe a method for producing high-resolution chemical patterns on surfaces to control the attachment and growth of cultured neurons. Microcontact printing has been extended to allow the printing of micron-scale protein lines aligned to an underlying pattern of planar microelectrodes. Poly-L-lysine (PL) lines have been printed on the electrode array(More)
The composition of specialized structures present at synapses within the central nervous system was elucidated by biochemical analysis of fractions enriched in synaptic junctional complexes and postsynaptic densities. The results indicate that the synaptic junctional complex is primarily protein together with some glycoproteins. The synaptic junctional(More)
