Electroactive polymeric scaffolds and delivering nerve growth factor to nerve tissue

A polymerizable unit that yields an electrochemically responsive polymer (advantageously pyrrole) is anchored by polymerization within a polycaprolactone matrix to form an electroactive scaffold upon which cells can be cultured and in which the micro- and nano-topological features of the polycaprolactone matrix are preserved. A scaffold manufactured in accordance with the preferred embodiment can support schwann cells, which produce nerve growth factor when electrically stimulated.
