About this Research Topic

Abstract Submission Deadline 15 December 2022
Manuscript Submission Deadline 15 February 2023

Cellular bioelectricity occurs as a result of ion transport across cell membranes and tissues, and represents a crucial cue in guiding cellular differentiation (e.g., stem cells), mutation (e.g., cancer cells), and migration (e.g., wound healing). Electrogenic cells (neurons and cardiomyocytes) exhibit action potentials, the rapid polarization and depolarization of the cellular membrane.

Being able to record bioelectrical manifestations and their variations under different conditions is important for cell monitoring, drug toxicity testing, and in vitro tissue models. Recently, nanotechnology methods have been used to design devices for recording electrical signals from cells and tissues with high accuracy and low invasiveness, compared with gold standard methods.

This Research Topic aims at collecting the latest findings in nano-devices for electrophysiological recording of cells and tissues. Applications include, but are not limited to, drug testing, in vitro biological modelling, and understanding of biological phenomena. Original research papers as well as review articles are welcome for submission.

Keywords: Bioelectronics, membrane potential, nanotechnology, electrophysiological recording, cellular electrophysiology


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
