Description

Nanotechnology is revolutionizing medicine and neuroscience. However, with this innovation comes the concern of the potential risks posed by nanomaterials to the human nervous system. As scientific research progresses, so does the urgency to understand and mitigate these risks. This book offers a multidisciplinary approach to tackle the complexities of nanotechnology's impact on neurological health.

Amidst the excitement of scientific advancements, Nanomaterials and the Nervous System provides a critical analysis of nanoparticle-induced neurotoxicity. By dissecting the hazards associated with nanomaterials, it guides researchers, policymakers, and healthcare professionals in developing safer alternatives and regulatory frameworks. Moreover, it delves into speculative theories and conspiracy narratives, prompting crucial discussions on the ethical and societal implications of nanotechnology.



Author's/Editor's Biography

Deniz Erisen (Ed.)
Deniz Eren Eri┼čen has co-authored several recent studies on biomaterials, including biodegradable metal alloys for stents, bioactive polymer coatings, and antimicrobial materials for catheters. His work in degradable magnesium alloys for carotid artery stents showed feasibility and safety in vitro and in vivo. With colleagues, he developed a polydopamine-chitosan coating to improve metallic implants and a chitosan-copper material to prevent catheter infections. These innovations aim to enhance biocompatibility and combat complications with medical devices.
