In an attempt to decipher the communications codes used by mammalian brain cells, University of Illinois researchers are using chip lithography to "microprint" furrows that growing brain cells will follow when budding inputs (dendrites) and outputs (axons). Theoretically, the method would use off-the-shelf electrode arrays and allow engineers to characterize living nerve cells by precisely "wiring" together test circuits and measuring their performance.
