New brain implant software at JHU can accurately detect imminent epileptic seizures, which should significantly cut false alarms and unneeded electrical shocks.
This is an eccentric, yet stunning show by TED Fellow Lucy McRae. She is a body architect who works on the ways to merge biology and technology in our own bodies.
Japanese artist and therapist Masaki Batoh created a machine that can create sound from brain waves. Check this video..
A new technology developed at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) can now automate and standardize the process of collecting whole-brain images in lesser time.
2011 has been an amazing year for scientific discoveries. From all the innovations, over-hyped findings and controversial studies, I’d love to consider the brain chips and implants, they have to be my favorites.
Happy New Year! So, 2011 had gone past, I found plenty of biomedical technology news which I couldn’t blog about. Let me share those bookmarks today…
I found this interesting research related to Parkinson’s disease (a disorder of the brain that leads to tremors and difficulty with walking, movement, and coordination). Basically, the unknown death of dopamine-containing cells in mid brain is the main cause. Today, we have a hope, to revive these neurons in Parkinson’s disease patients with GNDF.
One of the serious health problems today is combating cardiovascular diseases. A Columbia team of biomedical researchers have established a new method to patch a damaged heart using a tissue-engineering platform that enables heart tissue to repair itself.
I just came across this amazing science video by Dr Edward Johnson, a Cell Biology Professor and Dr Clayton Wright from the Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) at Norfolk in Virginia. These researchers were able to grow World’s First Living Google Logo in their microbiology lab as part of the Google Demo Slam online video competition. This is how it looks …
