We have reported that self-organized porous films can be used for neural tissue engineering scaffolds. However, poorly understood area is the effect of initial alignment of neurons on neurite growth and function. In this study, we report the control of neuron alignment and the construction of a neural network by using the optical tweezers on a self-organized pattern.
