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.
Using a system dubbed μRobotex system, researchers have created a microhouse so small a mite can not fit through the front door. Researchers say the creation pushes forward the frontiers of optical nanotechnologies.
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.
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.
A new nanocarrier meets the size and stability to effectively pass the BBB and deliver drugs to glioblastoma multiforme brain cancer.
