The search for new electrode materials including new electrode modification methods is crucial for improving long-term performance of neuroprosthetic devices. In this study, an investigation of electrochemically co-deposited polypyrrole/single-walled carbon nanotube (PPy/SWCNT) films for improving the electrode-neural interface was reported. The PPy/SWCNT microelectrodes exhibited a particularly high safe charge injection (Q(inj)) limit of approximately 7.5 mC/cm(2) and low electrode impedance… CONTINUE READING
