Researchers from the line Bioelectric Characterization of the nanoscale from IBEC (Institut de biornginyeria de Catalunya) and the Polytechnic of Milan have developed a technique to know precisely and in detail how the cell membrane responds to the alternating electric field at the nanoscale, i.e., their dielectric properties. 

The study, published in the journal Nano Letters, allows new possibilities in the study of nanobioelectric phenomena in biological membranes.
