Using graphene oxide flakes to combat anxiety

A paper published in Biomaterials reports the possible use of graphene oxide flakes synthesized by the Nanomedicine@ICN2 Team to combat anxiety-related behaviour in vertebrates. This study envisions the application of such graphene oxide flakes as nanotools for improved precision medicine in neurological disorders.

The research was led by SISSA – International School for Advanced Studies of Trieste (Italy), in the framework of the European Graphene Flagship project.
