    • Conformal Electrode Arrays to Enable in Vivo Recordings of the Enteric Nervous System 

      Ecker, Melanie; Guerrero, Edgar; Flores, Pedro Emanuel Roca; Voit, Walter E.
      Statement of Purpose: The enteric nervous system (ENS) has the largest population of neurons in the peripheral nervous system, but it is not well understood and is less investigated than the central nervous system. Most ...
    • Electrical Properties of Thiol-ene-Based Shape Memory Polymers Intended For Flexible Electronics 

      Frewin, Christopher L.; Ecker, Melanie; Joshi-Imre, Alexandra; Kamgue, Jonathan; Waddell, Jeanneane; Danda, Vindhya Reddy; Stiller, Alison M.; Voit, Walter E.; Pancrazio, Joseph J. (MDPI AG, 2019-05-17)
      Thiol-ene/acrylate-based shape memory polymers (SMPs) with tunable mechanical and thermomechanical properties are promising substrate materials for flexible electronics applications. These UV-curable polymer compositions ...
    • Environmental Dynamic Mechanical Analysis to Predict the Softening Behavior of Neural Implants 

      Hosseini, Seyed Mahmoud; Voit, Walter E.; Ecker, Melanie
      When using dynamically softening substrates for neural implants, it is important to have a reliable in vitro method to characterize the softening behavior of these materials. In the past, it has not been possible to ...
    • A Mosquito Inspired Strategy to Implant Microprobes into the Brain 

      Shoffstall, Andrew J.; Srinivasan, Suraj; Willis, Mitchell; Stiller, Allison M.; Ecker, Melanie; Voit, Walter E.; Pancrazio, Joseph J.; Capadona, Jeffrey R. (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-11-05)
      Mosquitos are among the deadliest insects on the planet due to their ability to transmit diseases like malaria through their bite. In order to bite, a mosquito must insert a set of micro-sized needles through the skin to ...
