Abstract: 

Current therapies for neurological disorders are based on traditional medication and electric stimulation. Here, we present an organic electronic biomimeticneuron,with the capacity to precisely intervene with the underlying malfunctioning signalling pathway using endogenous substances.The fundamental function of neurons,defined aschemical-to-electrical-to-chemicalsignal transduction,is achieved by connecting enzyme based amperometric biosensors and organic electronic ion pumps.
