Amyloid plaques can cling to newly developed bowl-shaped nanoparticles. The findings provide a new way to study the Alzheimer's related plaques and provides novel treatment options for dementia.
Researchers use nanotech to enhance vision in mice, enabling them to see infrared light as well as visible light.
Newly designed microbots can deliver vital drugs throughout the human body. The microbots can traverse the body and penetrate bodily mucus to efficiently deliver medications to target sites.
Researchers have developed a method of fabricating nanoscale electronic scaffolds that can be injected. The scaffolds can be used to monitor neural activity or promote neurogenesis.
A new nanocarrier meets the size and stability to effectively pass the BBB and deliver drugs to glioblastoma multiforme brain cancer.
Using titanate nanowires treated with cerebrolysin, researchers have been able to target delivery to the brain and through the central nervous system. Researchers report the use of nanowires to deliver drugs could be beneficial in the treatment of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other neurodegenerative diseases.
A new device that uses fast flowing fluids to insert nanotubes into the brain may be used to help treat a number of neurological diseases, researchers say.
A new nanoparticle drug-delivery system resulted in unprecedented siRNA penetration across the intact blood-brain barrier. Researchers say the system could help doctors to treat secondary injuries associated with TBI that can result in Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative disorders.
