Chapter 8

What will be Next?


This chapter, the last of this book, discusses possible directions along which the electrical control of biological reactions and phenomena are likely to develop in the years to come. The potential contexts encompass both biomedical and energy applications, foreseeing the involvement of both animals (humans included) and plants. The technological development of micro- and nano-electrodes and diffused power supplies (nano-batteries), along with the advances in the field of redox biology, will for sure suggest many more phenomena where direct electrochemical control is possible and advantageous in view of an always more pervasive extension of human technological control of living matter.
