Though they are common and can have severely debilitating effects, the precise cause of migraines remains a mystery. A study has shed important new light on the topic by leveraging cutting-edge imaging technology to gain a new perspective on structures in the brain, which revealed enlarged spaces around the blood vessels in people suffering the condition.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, Science
The Sumatran rhino is critically endangered and difficult to breed. But now, researchers have created induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from the genetic material of a male, potentially providing new ways to help conservation efforts. They even used them to grow mini rhino brains in the lab.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Stem Cells, Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPS), organ
Researchers at Rice University have shown how they can hack the brains of fruit flies to make them remote controlled. The flies performed a specific action within a second of a command being sent to certain neurons in their brain.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Neuroscience, Brain, Brain-to-Brain, Brain stimulation, Magnetic field, Fruit Flies, Rice University, DARPA
'it begins with an idea' invites people to reflect on the extraordinary complexity of the organ that controls our thoughts, perceptions, emotions, and behaviors. The post exploring the complexity of human brains by fondazione prada at venice art biennale 2022 appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Insta360 has announced a successor to its One R modular actioncam system, which comes with a new 4K Boost Lens boasting improved light sensitivity, more powerful brains for faster Wi-Fi and instant zoom, enhanced image stabilization and a redesigned mounting bracket.Continue ReadingCategory: Photography, TechnologyTags: Insta360, Actioncam, Modular, 4k, 360-degree
the floor plan is folded around an atrium, similar to the characteristic folds in the cerebral cortex. The post bjarke ingels group designs a neuroscience center to mimic the brain’s soft folds appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
A large study of more than 36,000 high-quality MRI brain scans has found that drinking four units of alcohol a day – two beers, or two glasses of wine – causes structural damage and brain volume loss equivalent to 10 years of aging.Continue ReadingCategory: Health & Wellbeing, LifestyleTags: Alcohol, University of Pennsylvania, Brain
The past decade of research into deep brain stimulation (DBS), in which implanted electrodes are used to target specific brain regions with electrical impulses, has brought to light its potential to tackle a variety of neurological disorders. Depression is one where the technology is beginning to show real promise, and a new study has uncovered valuable details on how it induces anti-depressive e
There are now a number of bike-mounted devices that laser-project lines onto the road, showing motorists how much passing space they should provide. tether works in a similar fashion, but it also senses passing vehicles in order to produce cyclist-safe road maps.Continue ReadingCategory: Bicycles, TransportTags: bike lights, Kickstarter, Road Safety, Cycling, Laser
The interplay between high blood pressure and brain health is one scientists continue to shed new light on, with studies increasingly linking hypertension to a decline in cognitive function later in life. New research has drilled into the details around when exactly this relationship begins to take shape, finding that it not only begins earlier than suspected, but that even those with blood press is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics. We focus on hi-tech reviews, gadgets and geekery but we like almost anything that's awesome, appealing and thought-provoking! er6i9ds5mz
