• Guiding worm locomotion with magnetically reconfigurable microtopographies

    13 days ago - By Phys

    The living worm Caenorhabditis elegans has ~60% gene similarity to humans. This similarity has been studied to develop therapies for age-induced diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. However, the research investigating these worms needs advancement to reveal relationships between locomotion abilities and sensory neurons.
