Graphene-nanofiber hybrid scaffolds selectively guide the differentiation of neural stem cells into mature oligodendro­cytes, which are the myelinating cells of the central nervous system. Moreover, this process is facilitated without introducing differentiation inducers into the culture media, underscoring the potential of a biomaterials-approach for neural tissue engineering.

Keywords: biomaterials; electrospun nanofibers; graphene; neural stem cells; differentiation
