Researchers have developed a new system that comprises of a brain implant containing LEDs and gene therapy to modulate brain waves. The technology showed success in suppressing abnormal brain waves akin to those seen during an epileptic seizure.
Researchers have developed a new method to create glutamatergic neuronal cells from SH-SY5Y cells without the use of animal-derived components. The new technique repurposes the B-27 growth supplement. This is the first time SH-SY5Y cells have been transformed into glutamatergic neuronal cells, researchers report.
D-Cycloserine, an antibiotic used for the treatment of tuberculosis, increases the effectiveness of transcranial magnetic stimulation for those with major depressive disorder.
Researchers interested in musical characteristics associated with sleep music and the effects of musical structure on sleep are working together using neuroscience, AI, and sleep medicine to create "super lullaby" soundscapes.
Orbit, an interactive robot, helps teach children on the autism spectrum to develop social appropriateness and emotion via storytelling, physical interaction, and visual communication.
A new in-home device that monitors movement and gait speed can evaluate Parkinson's disease severity, progression, and a patient's response to medication.
The pioneering "soleus pushup" effectively elevates muscle metabolism for hours, even when sitting.
A new multitask model artificial intelligence algorithm based on data from wearables predicts treatment outcomes on an individual basis for those with depression.
