Researchers develop ‘living diode’ using cardiac muscle cells

Scientists are one step closer to mimicking the way biological systems interact and process information in the body – a vital step toward developing new forms of biorobotics and novel treatment approaches for several muscle-related health problems such as muscular degenerative disorders, arrhythmia and limb loss.

Using cardiac muscle cells and cardiac fibroblasts – cells found in connective heart tissue – researchers at the University of Notre Dame have created a “living diode,” which can be used for cell-based information processing.
