  • We report the design, fabrication, and implementation of a device to culture rat hippocampal neurons guided by arrays of cell-adhesive biopolymers on traditional cell culture substrates. These guided arrays of cells are shown to permit live-imaging of mitochondrial transport through the cell axon. We further report the development of a microfluidic device to deliver solutes to discrete sections of rat hippocampal neurons with spatial and temporal resolution. © 2009 CBMS.
