Abstract

This paper describes mobile microplates for morphological control and handling of single neural cells. We fabricated mobile microplates having a center circle (termed "Base") and radiated lines (termed "Path") for controlling the shape of neural cells: cell bodies and neurites. Single neural cells were cultured on the microplates, and their morphologies were fully controlled by the Base/Path structures. The morphologically controlled single neural cells on the microplates were also three-dimensionally handlable by microtweezers. We believe our method would be useful in the assembly of cultured neuronal networks at the single cell level.
