Graphene is better than glass for neural stem cell growth

Researchers from Korea report that graphene is better than glass for human neural stem cells (hNSCs) growth - exhibiting a greater ratio of neurons to glial cells. When using graphene as a substrate, cells grew well and stuck well on the graphene, and the substrate could deliver currents to the neural cells, which may be useful for neural stimulation.
