The problem of interfacing microsystems to neurons or brain has led to exciting developments in the fields of micro/nano technologies and integrated circuitry and systems. Neurons have been patterned using micro/nano technologies to form structural and functional networks. Micro-electrodes and integrated circuitry have been developed for large scale, multi-channel measurements from brain tissue. Driving force for this technology comes from research and clinical interest in the emerging fields of neural prosthesis, deep brain stimulations and brain-machine interface. This review presents some examples of the work done in the field of neural patterning, tissue interfacing, electrodes, recording and system integration.
