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.
