Graphene-based brain implants hit the headlines

The year 2019 started with a work in Nature Materials describing how researchers in Barcelona have developed a graphene-based implant able to record electrical activity in the brain at extremely low frequencies and over large areas. This work led by the ICN2 and the IMB-CNM, CSIC was also participated by IDIBAPS, CIBER-BBN and ICFO.

ICN2 research on flexoelectricity highlighted in the MRS Bulletin

The articles comment on a paper published in Applied Physics Letters with ICN2 PhD student Pablo Vales-Castro and ICREA Prof. Gustau Catalán, from the ICN2 Oxide Nanophysics Group, as first and last author, respectively. This work suggests that it is unlikely that flexoelectricity causes antiferroelectricity, as was previously hypothesised.
