Bioelectronic medicine is an emerging field that relies on electrical signals to modulate complex neuronal circuits, particularly in the peripheral nervous system, as an alternative to drug-enabled therapeutics. Small autonomic nerves are one of the targets in this field, however, interfacing peripheral nerves smaller than 300 μm remains a challenge. Here we report the development of a Microchannel Electrode Array (DCEA) capable of interfacing nerve fascicles as small as 50-300μm. The current μCEA records and stimulates from 28 channels and is designed for easy implantation and removal, bearing promise to enable neural interfacing in BM.
