Due to their unique structural and magnetic properties, magnetic nanotubes could be used in the field of neuroscience. In this study, hematite and maghemite nanotubes were synthesized and characterized. These magnetic nanotubes with coupled proteins such as albumin or laminin were used to investigate the interaction of nanotubes and their influence on somatosensory neurons from the dorsal root ganglion of rat. Our results indicated differential effects of magnetic nanotubes on neuronal growth based on the nanomaterial.
