MIT researchers have developed a soft, flexible, 3D printed neural implants that can conform to the contours of the brain. The implant can monitor neural activity over long periods of time, without aggravating surrounding tissue.
A new quantum sensor is able to automatically receive hydrogen when placed beneath a brain slice. Researchers say this could be the first step in creating a pathway that builds a computer device to store and transfer real memories, in essence, allowing for the 'upload' of memory.
Researchers have developed a new method of reducing the time it takes to grow mini brain models in the lab. This may accelerate research into diseases and injury that affect the nervous system.
Researchers have rewired the neural circuits of one species and given its connections to a new species. The study answers a number of questions about evolution of neural circuits and behavior.

Researchers have developed a new prosthetic hand with the ability to 'see' objects. They believe their invention can allow the wearer to automatically reach for objects.
A new study reports researchers have successfully used electrical stimulation on the spinal cord of a paralyzed patient to allow him to stand, move his legs and make stepping motions.
