Researchers have created an artificial nervous system that may give prosthetics and robots reflexes and the ability to sense touch. The system is sensitive enough to identify letters in the Braille alphabet.
Study shows pilots in real flight conditions made more errors and had higher anterior prefrontal cortex activation than those who were placed in a simulator, when completing cognitively demanding tasks.
NYU Langone researchers have developed a new MRI system capable of delivering clear images of bones, tendons and ligaments in the hand. The MRI glove can capture high quality images of joints moving. Researchers say the glove may be useful in diagnosing repetitive strain injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
