Dr. Maria Asplund is a researcher in Freiburg, Germany who works mainly in PEDOT. She talks about the benefits of PEDOT as a coating for neural implants. It allows for functionalization of the surface as well as a better connection to brain cells. It has a porous surface as well as good conductance which means that you have a better signal. We then talk about the differences with carbon nanotube electrodes and the benefits of both.
