A05 – Dielectric evaluation of cellular and interfacial characteristics for electrical stimulation

Summary of the work programme

The dielectric properties of cells and tissues determine their response to electrical stimulation. These characteristics can be distinguished based on a sensitive analysis of impedance measurements. Accordingly, tissue composition and structures can be determined and evaluated. The resulting overall goal is to distinguish patient-specific differences for initial tissue conditions and for responses to electrical stimulation by impedance diagnostics. Particularly important in this respect are electrode-tissue interfaces which determine cell attachment and growth but also the long-term behaviour of implanted electrodes.
