Abstract

We report an integrated microdevice that can perform high spatial resolution, single-neuron level electroporation in deep brain. The microdevice was characterized with in vitro electroporation with MDA-MB-231 cells and cell membrane non-permeable dyes. In vivo electroporation with a plasmid that encodes the green fluorescent protein (GFP) as a reporter gene was successfully demonstrated at hippocampus of mouse brain, and single neuron that expresses green fluorescent protein was observed.
