Joseph, et al publishes paper in ACS Nano!

We are excited to announce that Joseph’s paper entitled, “Memristive Ion Channel-Doped Biomembranes as Synaptic Mimics” was recently accepted by ACS Nano! This study is the first to demonstrate that biomembranes doped with alamethicin peptides exhibit voltage-dependent conductance with both short-term learning and memory capabilities–key features of synaptic plasticity in the brain! These findings forecast new opportunities for low-power neuromorphic materials built from biomolecules. Congrats Joseph and all co-authors!
