Abstract

Neural scaffolds: A method for fabricating electrospun nanofiber membranes with arrayed microwells and aligned structural cues on their surfaces by using a collector assembled from stainless steel beads is reported. It is demonstrated that formation of cell microarrays and neuronal networks can be achieved using this novel class of nanofiber scaffolds.
