Abstract

We present a microfluidic device that controls rat hippocampal neurons without chemical surface patterning or chemical gradients and is capable of solute delivery to discrete sections of neurons with spatial and temporal resolution. Through the use of analytical expressions and computational models, we select device geometry based upon injection time, ability to confine solutes, and shear stress considerations. Preliminary results show guidance of rat hippocampal neurons within channels, response of mitochondrial transport to toxins, and theoretical solute distributions as a function of device parameters.
