Researchers scrutinize the long-held perception that new mothers are more forgetful and less attentive. Mothers, they found, have similar alerting and orienting attention, and better executive control attention compared to women without children.
New microscopy technology images the position of biomolecules with precision down to a few nanometers inside whole cells and tissues.
A new optical imaging tool allows surgeons to map out cancerous tumors and helps to provide a better understanding of how diseases affect brain activity.

Researchers have developed a sensor-instrumented glove for prosthetic hand controls which can sense pressure, temperature, and hydration using electronic chips sending sensory data via a wristwatch.
A new quantum sensor is able to automatically receive hydrogen when placed beneath a brain slice. Researchers say this could be the first step in creating a pathway that builds a computer device to store and transfer real memories, in essence, allowing for the 'upload' of memory.
