An international team of researchers have created remote controlled nanobots from a biodegradable material that they believe could assist doctors in diagnosing diseases and delivering drugs to target sites.
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.
Researchers have developed nanowires that can record the electrical activity of neurons in fine detail. The technology will allow for better investigation as to how the brain works.
A new nanocarrier meets the size and stability to effectively pass the BBB and deliver drugs to glioblastoma multiforme brain cancer.
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.
Researchers use nanotechnology to create a light sensitive film that could form the basis for a prosthetic retina.
