Electric dipoles induced on conducting materials within electrochemical cells, modify neural behaviour in substantial ways. This work evaluates the field gradients and intercalation processes that occur at the poles of the unconnected mixed conducting material serving as neural growth support, and that eventually favour direction and speed of neural growth. Remote control of electrostimulation processes in the neural system may be devised and lower impedance energy storage systems demonstrated.
