Complication risk of deep brain stimulation similar for older, younger Parkinson patients (8/30/2014)

Older patients with Parkinson disease who undergo deep brain stimulation appear to have a 90-day complication risk similar to younger patients, suggesting that age alone should not be a primary factor for excluding patients as DBS candidates. ...> Full Article


'Robo Brain' will teach robots everything from the Internet (8/29/2014)

Robo Brain -- a large-scale computational system that learns from publicly available Internet resources -- is currently downloading and processing about 1 billion images, 120,000 YouTube videos, and 100 million how-to documents and appliance manuals. The information is being translated and stored in a robot-friendly format that robots will be able to draw on when they need it. ...> Full Article


Louisiana Tech University researchers use 3D printers to create custom medical implants (8/28/2014)

Louisiana Tech University researchers use 3D printers to create custom medical implantsA team of researchers at Louisiana Tech University has developed an innovative method for using affordable, consumer-grade 3D printers and materials to fabricate custom medical implants that can contain antibacterial and chemotherapeutic compounds for targeted drug delivery. ...> Full Article


Research paves way for development of cyborg moth 'biobots' (8/26/2014)

Research paves way for development of cyborg moth 'biobots'Researchers have developed methods for electronically manipulating the flight muscles of moths and for monitoring the electrical signals moths use to control those muscles. The work opens the door to the development of remotely-controlled moths, or 'biobots,' for use in emergency response. ...> Full Article


Bionic liquids from lignin (8/20/2014)

Bionic liquids from ligninBionic liquids -- solvents made from lignin and hemicellulose, two by-products of biofuel production -- show great promise for liberating fermentable sugars from lignocellulose and improving the economics of biofuels refineries. ...> Full Article

Bypass commands from the brain to legs through a computer (8/17/2014)

Bypass commands from the brain to legs through a computerA Japanese research group led by Shusaku Sasada, research fellow and Yukio Nishimura, associate professor of the National Institute for Physiological Sciences and National Institutes of Natural Sciences, has successfully made an artificial connection from the brain to the locomotion center in the spinal cord by bypassing with a computer and exercised control over walking. This result is published in The Journal of Neuroscience. ...> Full Article


Researchers develop defense against cyberattacks (8/17/2014)

A group of journalists has reported the existence of the 'Hacienda' spy program. According to this report, five western intelligence agencies are using the Hacienda software to identify vulnerable servers across the world in order to control them and use them for their own purposes. Scientists at the Technische Universität München have developed free software that can help prevent this kind of identification and thus the subsequent capture of systems. ...> Full Article


'Shape-shifting' material could help reconstruct faces (8/16/2014)

'Shape-shifting' material could help reconstruct facesInjuries, birth defects or surgery to remove a tumor can create large gaps in bone. And when they occur in the head, face or jaw, these defects can dramatically alter a person's appearance. Researchers will report at the 248th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society that they have developed a 'self-fitting' material that expands with warm salt water to precisely fill bone defects, and also acts as a scaffold for bone growth. ...> Full Article


Tattoo biobatteries produce power from sweat (video) (8/15/2014)

Tattoo biobatteries produce power from sweat (video)In the future, working up a sweat by exercising may not only be good for your health, but it could also power small electronic devices. Researchers will report at the 248th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society that they have designed a temporary-tattoo sensor that can both monitor a person's progress during exercise and produce power from their perspiration. A brand-new video on the research is available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_D7JOd07M8&feature=youtu.be. ...> Full Article

On the frontiers of cyborg science (8/13/2014)

Cyborg technology is bringing us real-life electronic skin, prosthetics and ultra-flexible circuits. Now taking this human-machine concept to an unprecedented level, pioneering scientists are working on the seamless marriage between electronics and brain signaling with the potential to transform our understanding of how the brain works -- and how to treat its most devastating diseases. Their presentation is taking place at the 248th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society. ...> Full Article


Small, origami-inspired pop-up robots function autonomously (8/12/2014)

Small, origami-inspired pop-up robots function autonomouslyInspired by the traditional Japanese art form of Origami or 'folding paper,' researchers have developed a way to coax flat sheets of composite materials to self-fold into complex robots that crawl and turn. ...> Full Article


Artificial retina: Physicists develop an interface to the optical nerve (8/11/2014)

Physicists at Technische Universitat Munchen (TUM) are using the special properties of graphene to produce key elements of an artificial retina. With their research program the researchers were admitted to the heavily funded 'Graphene' Flagship Program of the European Union. ...> Full Article
