In this talk, we will discuss the development of bioelectronics to study brain- and cardiovasculardiseases. Specifically, we will highlight a new extracellular physiological recording platform, Organic Electrochemical Transistor (OECT) [1-3]. This OECTbased device can be manufactured on a flexible substrate  and arranged in a high-density array format  and it seems to be a promising technology platform to study excitable cells (e.g., neurons and cardiomyocytes). In the long run, OECT based devices could be made in flexible shape using flexible materials and could potentially be an interesting in-situ platform to prognose neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases.
