What if experts could dig into the brain, like archaeologists, and uncover the history of past experiences?

Carbon Nanotube Harpoon Used to Catch Individual Brain-cell Signals
2013-06-20 11:33:48

Neuroscientists may soon be modern-day harpooners, snaring individual brain-cell signals instead of whales with tiny spears made of carbon nanotubes.

Fiber-optic Pen Used To See Inside Brains Of Children With Learning Disabilities
2013-06-18 13:09:41

For less than $100, University of Washington researchers have designed a computer-interfaced drawing pad that helps scientists see inside the brains of children with learning disabilities while they read and write.

New Imaging Technique Could Help Speed Up Research For MS

The Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging’s 2013 Annual Meetingmarks the unveiling of the successful application of a new preclinical hybrid molecular imaging system—single photon emission tomography and magnetic resonance (SPECT/MR)—which has exceptional molecular imaging capabilities in terms of potential preclinical and clinical applications, technological advancement at a lower cost, and reduction of patient exposure to ionizing radiation.


Word of the Day
bretelles
  • In dressmaking, straps running from the belt in front over the shoulders to the belt in the back, with more or less elaboration of trimming and outline. They usually broaden at the shoulder and narrow toward the waist.
The word 'bretelles' comes from a French word meaning 'braces'.
