Due to their peculiar physical and chemical properties, carbon nanotubes are intensively studied for many different applications, including those in the biomedical field. Carbon nanotubes are electrically conductive, elastic but mechanically resistant and these features, among others, have made them an ideal material for therapeutic applications at the neural tissue interface. The major recent advances in the study of carbon nanotube-based materials aimed at nerve tissue regeneration and functional recovery are reviewed here.
