A new artificial intelligence technique could speed up complex physics simulations and help create multilayered nanoparticles, researchers say.
Researchers at MIT have developed a new drug delivering nanoparticle that is able to cross the blood-brain barrier. The nanoparticles carry two different drugs that can help shrink tumors and prevent them from growing back.
A new study outlines how researchers have been able to deliver concentrated amounts of drugs directly into the brains of rats by using ultrasound.
Researchers report they have discovered tiny magnetic nanoparticles from air pollution lodged in the human brain. They believe these nanoparticles could contribute to some cases of Alzheimer's.
Researchers develop a new technique to stimulate brain tissue by injecting magnetic nanoparticles and using external magnetic fields.
New research would help emergency care workers and battlefield medics stabilize blood flow in the brains of traumatic injury victims. Researchers developed a nanoparticle-based antioxidant that quickly quenches free radicals that interfere with regulation of the brain’s vascular system.
