X-rays are known to penetrate the body’s deep tissues, which is why they’re used to deliver cancer radiotherapy. Whereas radiotherapy uses X-ray beams to damage tumor cells’ DNA, killing them, photodynamic therapy uses a different method to achieve the same result. The photons in laser beams are used to excite light-reactive molecules called photosensitizers that have been placed in tumors, causi
Based on fractal patterns in neurons, researchers believe our brains exist at or near a state called criticality where they're extremely close to shifting from one state of matter to another. They also admit they don't know what either state is.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Northwestern University, Brain, Neuroscience, Neural Network, Neurological
A wearable ultrasound patch could soon be saving lives, by monitoring the blood flow in hospital patients' brains. The device is only about the size of a postage stamp plus it works continuously, unlike traditional methods.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: UC San Diego, Ultrasound, blood vessel, Brain, wearable electronics
By combining brain scans and nutritional intake data, a new study has found a nutrient profile that puts the brakes on brain aging. What's more, that profile matches an easy-to-follow popular eating plan that's been proven to convey multiple benefits.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Diet, University of Nebraska, University of Illinois, Aging, Brain, anti-aging
Noland Arbaugh was in a swimming accident in 2016 that left him a quadriplegic. In January of this year, he became the first person to receive Elon Musk's Neuralink brain implant called the Link that would eventually allow him to have telekinetic powers.Continue ReadingCategory: TechnologyTags: Elon Musk, Neuralink, Brain-computer interface, Philips Wireless HDTV Link
In good news for future animation figureheads, there might be a new way to revive frozen brains without damaging them. Scientists in China have developed a new chemical concoction that lets brain tissue function again after being frozen.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Cryopreservation, Brain, organoid, Fudan University
The current breakthrough weight-loss drugs are only the beginning, according to Danish researchers hard at work on a new treatment that targets the brain's natural plasticity, which could offset bad side effects and provide more long-term benefits.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: University of Copenhagen, Ozempic, Obesity, Weight Loss, molecular biology
the detailed images allow researchers from google and harvard university to understand what’s happening in the human brain and its neurons. The post google AI and harvard researchers release detailed images of human brain using 3D mapping appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Harvard and Google Research have released a startlingly deep dive into the human brain, mapping thousands of cells and millions of synapses in a poppy seed-sized sample of brain tissue. The effort produced some stunning images and marks a major step towards one of the biggest challenges in science.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Brain, Neuroscience, Harvard, Google, Connectomics,
Glioblastoma is one of the most deadly cancers, with few treatment options available. Now, a small human clinical trial has demonstrated an mRNA vaccine that quickly rallies the immune system to fight off the tumors, with promising results.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Cancer, Brain cancer, Vaccines, RNA, University of Florida is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
