A prosthetic arm that is attached to the bone and controlled by electrodes implanted in nerves and muscles can operate more precisely than conventional prosthetic limbs. Researchers improved the neuroprosthetic hand by integrating tactile sensory feedback, so the patient can "feel" items.
Researchers present a new theory which states, following amputation, the neural circuitry connected to the missing limb becomes entangled with other neural networks, specifically ones responsible for pain perception.
Increasing fish consumption could help to lower the risk of developing Parkinson's and other neurodegenerative diseases, researchers report. The study reveals the protein parvalbumin can help to prevent the formation of alpha synuclein.
A new study reports microwave measurements can rapidly detect intracranial bleeding in those who suffer TBI.
Researchers have developed a new method that utilizes both machine learning and augmented reality to help treat those with chronic phantom limb pain following amputation.
