Two-dimensional (2D) micropatterning techniques have been developed to guide dissociated neurons into predefined distributions on solid substrates, such as glass and plastic. Micropatterning methods using three-dimensional (3D) substrates or scaffolds that reproduce aspects of the in vivo microenvironment could facilitate the engineering of functional tissues for transplantation or more robust experimental models. We developed a 3D collagen gel photothermal etching method using an infrared… CONTINUE READING
