Chapter 1. This chapter is divided into six sections. The first will discuss the issue of nerve tissue loss, and the strategies of therapy (1.1). The second describes the role of nanofabrication in tissue engineering (1.2). The third section details the theoretical background of electrospinning in terms of solution and process parameters (1.3). The fourth section introduces near-field electrospinning (NFES), recent advances in this field and the principles of NFES techniques (1.4). The fifth section details objectives for a tissue engineered construct for neural cell therapy, and presents possible viable solutions (1.5). The sixth summarizes the aims and structure of this thesis (1.6)...
