Monitoring Parkinson’s disease with implantable microelectrodes

Microelectrodes with gold nanoparticles and self-assembled monolayers for in vivo recording of striatal dopamine

Chen et al., Analyst, 2012, Advance Article

Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that is characterized by the progressive depletion of dopamine (DA). There are currently several treatments that attempt to replace this depletion. As a result, accurately measuring the levels of DA in the brain has become very important. Jia-Jin Jason Chen from the National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan, and colleagues have designed implantable DA sensing microelectrodes. To read more about their work click on the link below.
