Electrodes play a significant role in monitoring and inducing electrical activity in neural tissues. Electrode-nerve interface is engineered by employing zinc oxide nanowire electrodes, which greatly increase contact area and coated with iridium oxide for low impedance. This paper provides a good platform for the development of an electrode system for chronic neural stimulation applications.
