Neural tissue engineering and biohybridized microsystems for neurobiological investigation in vitro (Part 1).
TLDR
The efforts to engineer a range of 3-D neural cellular constructs by systematically varying parameters such as cell composition, cell density, matrix constituents, and mass transport are detailed, with ramifications on neural cell survival, function, and network formation based on these parameters are specifically addressed.
In Vitro Models for Biomechanical Studies of Neural Tissues
TLDR
Design criteria for ideal cultures, the current state of the art in neural cell and tissue culturing methods, and the advantages and limitations to using culture mimics are presented.
Anatomically Inspired Three-dimensional Micro-tissue Engineered Neural Networks for Nervous System Reconstruction, Modulation, and Modeling.
TLDR
This manuscript presents the fabrication protocol for micro-tissue engineered neural networks (micro-TENNs), implantable constructs consisting of neurons and aligned axonal tracts spanning the extracellular matrix (ECM) lumen of a preformed hydrogel cylinder hundreds of microns in diameter that may extend centimeters in length.
3D in vitro platform produced by two-photon polymerization for the analysis of neural network formation and function
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that two-photon-induced polymerization of organic–inorganic hybrid biomaterials provides a robust model for 3D neuronal tissue engineering studies.
Neural cell injury pathology due to high-rate mechanical loading
TLDR
This work quantifies and resolves the structural pathology and critical injury strain thresholds of neural cells occurring at high loading rates such as encountered in blast exposures or cavitation-based medical procedures, and finds that neuronal dendritic spines characterized by MAP2 displayed the lowest physical failure strain.
Development of the micro-patterned 3D neuronal-hydrogel model using soft-lithography for study a 3D neural network on a microelectrode array*
TLDR
A technique to construct the micro-pattern to 3D neuronal-hydrogel model using a micromolding in capillaries (MIMIC) technique on microelectrode array (MEA) and confirmed that the 3D model had synchronized activity among neurons in 3D.
Label-free monitoring of 3D cortical neuronal growth in vitro using optical diffraction tomography
TLDR
A label-free monitoring method for 3D neuronal growth based on refractive index tomograms obtained by optical diffraction tomography is proposed.
Direct Laser Writing of Tubular Microtowers for 3D Culture of Human Pluripotent Stem Cell-Derived Neuronal Cells.
TLDR
The design and 2PP-DLW fabrication process of a novel 3D neuronal cell culture platform based on tubular microtowers that facilitates efficient long-term 3D culturing of human neuronal cells and supports neurite orientation and 3D network formation is presented.
