Using minimally invasive brain implants, researchers evoked the sense of touch in patients who had lost tactile sensations. The technique could be used to restore tactile sensations to those with paralysis and neuropathy.
A new small-scale study reveals transcranial direct current stimulation improved gait and increased the benefits of aerobic exercise in Parkinson's patients.
Researchers have developed a new, flexible and steerable catheter that allows surgeons to guide the device in any direction while traversing the brain's arteries and blood vessels.
Researchers have successfully replicated an entire, viable glioblastoma brain tumor via 3D bioprinting. The bioprinted tumor includes a complex system of blood vessel-like tubes through which blood cells and drug molecules can flow, simulating a real tumor.
MIT researchers have developed a new, lightweight robotic hand that provides tactile feedback and is dexterous enough to perform tasks like zipping a suitcase and pouring juice.
"Neurograins" brain-computer interfaces independently record electrical impulses and send signals wirelessly to a central hub that coordinates and processes the signals.
Researchers have developed a new brain organoid model to study the mechanistic causes of Alzheimer's disease and test dementia drugs currently in development.
