The mechanical mismatch between soft neural tissues and stiff neural implants hinders the long-term performance of implantable neuroprostheses. Here, we designed and fabricated soft neural implants with the shape and elasticity of dura mater, the protective membrane of the brain and spinal cord. The electronic dura mater, which we call e-dura, embeds(More)
The effects of HgCl2 on the epidermis of Trichomycterus brasiliensis were studied by histological, histochemical, and ultrastructural methods. First, the normal organization of the tissue was described in order to study the HgCl2 effects on the skin structure. The epithelial cells presented a typical structural organization found in many fishes. Basically(More)
