Nanotechnology enters into the realm of basic biological units by its ability to functionally integrate with bio-systems. In recent years we reached an increased interest and improved understanding of such interactions with biological systems at a subcellular level. This latter feature can be understood and engineered with a high degree of specificity. Here, we review current experimental models that promote the development of novel bio-nanotechnology tools to help repair damaged nervous system tissues.
