The use of nanotechnology in neurosciences has been evolving since new treatments, diagnoses and biomolecule monitoring are needed to find safer treatments for central nervous system diseases (CNDs). Nanotechnology employs devices that interact with biological systems allowing molecular interactions with a high degree of specificity. This review considers concepts associated with nanotechnology and leading areas of neurosciences with nanotechnology research.

Keywords: Biosensors, nanotechnology, nanosensors, neuroregeneration, glial cells, neurosciences.
