Graphene and graphene-derived materials have been widely applied in various biomedical fields. In neuroscience, graphene and its derivatives can be applied as nanocarriers for drug delivery, as compelling biocompatible substrates for tissue engineering, as conductive electrodes for obtaining the stimulation response in studying neural networks, as low photobleaching nanocomposite tags in bioimaging, as enhancers for guiding neural growth and differentiation as regenerative medicine, and so forth. Among these applications, the material composition, functionalization, and dimension of graphene are considerably important. In this chapter, we provide a brief review to address the accomplishments and further perspective of graphene and its related materials applied in neuroscience.
