Squishy robots (7/22/2014)

In the movie 'Terminator 2,' the shape-shifting T-1000 robot morphs into a liquid state to squeeze through tight spaces or to repair itself when harmed. ...> Full Article


Virtual finger enables scientists to navigate and analyze complex 3D images (7/21/2014)

Researchers have pioneered a revolutionary new way to digitally navigate three-dimensional images. The new technology, called Virtual Finger, allows scientists to move through digital images of small structures like neurons and synapses using the flat surface of their computer screens. Virtual Finger's unique technology makes 3D imaging studies orders of magnitude more efficient, saving time, money and resources at an unprecedented level across many areas of experimental biology. ...> Full Article


Potential new therapy with brain-on-a-chip axonal strain injury model (7/18/2014)

Potential new therapy with brain-on-a-chip axonal strain injury modelResearchers from the Biomedical Engineering Department of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey recently demonstrated the use of their 'Brain-on-a-Chip' microsystem to assess specific effects of traumatic axonal injury. ...> Full Article


DARPA selects Lawrence Livermore to develop world's first neural device to restore memory (7/12/2014)

DARPA selects Lawrence Livermore to develop world's first neural device to restore memoryThe Department of Defense's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) awarded Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory up to $2.5 million to develop an implantable neural device with the ability to record and stimulate neurons within the brain to help restore memory, DARPA officials announced this week. ...> Full Article


Collisions with robots -- without risk of injury (7/11/2014)

Collisions with robots -- without risk of injuryTeamwork between humans and robots will be the motto of the future. But robots may not injure humans at all. When does contact cause an injury, though? Researchers are exploring this for the first time in a study. ...> Full Article


Muscle-powered bio-bots walk on command (7/10/2014)

Muscle-powered bio-bots walk on commandA new generation of miniature biological robots is flexing its muscle. Engineers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign demonstrated a class of walking 'bio-bots' powered by muscle cells and controlled with electrical pulses, giving researchers unprecedented command over their function. ...> Full Article

Bioelectronics could lead to a new class of medicine (7/7/2014)

Imagine having tiny electronics implanted somewhere in your body that can regulate nerve signals and make symptoms of various disorders go away. That's the vision of the field of bioelectronic medicine -- the emerging discipline that has made enough promising advances to draw a big investment by a pharmaceutical giant, according to an article in Chemical & Engineering News, the weekly news magazine of the American Chemical Society. ...> Full Article


World's first magnetic hose created (7/1/2014)

World's first magnetic hose createdAn international team of scientists led by researchers from the Department of Physics of the Universitat AutÚnoma de Barcelona has developed a material which guides and transports a magnetic field from one location to the other, similar to how an optical fiber transports light or a hose transports water. The creation could open up a wide field of applications, as happened with optical fibers. ...> Full Article


3-D computer model may help refine target for deep brain stimulation therapy for dystonia (6/30/2014)

Researchers led by investigators at Cedars-Sinai, using a complex set of data from records and imaging scans of patients who have undergone successful DBS implantation, have created 3-D, computerized models that map the brain region involved in dystonia. The models identify an anatomical target for further study and provide information for neurologists and neurosurgeons to consider when planning surgery and making device programming decisions. ...> Full Article


Wearable computing gloves can teach Braille, even if you're not paying attention (6/28/2014)

Wearable computing gloves can teach Braille, even if you're not paying attentionGeorgia Tech researchers are using a wearable computing technology to help people learn how to read and write Braille. Those learning the skills are able to do so while concentrating on something else. ...> Full Article


Man moves paralyzed hand with his own thoughts (6/27/2014)

Man moves paralyzed hand with his own thoughtsAn Ohio man has become the first patient ever to move his paralyzed hand by using his thoughts. In a small, crowded laboratory at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, 23-year old Ian Burkhart made a fist as doctors, neuroscientists and engineers from Battelle, and Ian's family gasped. The breakthrough was made possible by a cutting-edge technology called Neurobridge developed by researchers at Battelle, working with doctors at Ohio State. ...> Full Article
