Lobachevsky University researchers are developing a neurochip that could be used to replace damaged areas of the brain. Researchers report initial experiments have been successful in using this neurotechnology to transmit signals from artificial to real neurons.
Smartphone and internet addiction appears to have an impact on brain chemistry. A new study reports the ratio of GABA to Glx is significantly increased in the anterior cingulate cortex of teens who are addicted to their smartphones.
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.
Today the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) announced the formation of a new Cyber-Health Information Technology Advisory Board as part of an ongoing effort to support cybersecurity innovation and bolster advanced technology industries.
Following targeted motor and sensory reinnervation, a procedure that reroutes residual limb nerves to intact muscles and skin in amputees, the brain remaps both motor and sensory pathways. Additionally, researchers note, TMSR may help counteract poorly adapted cortical plasticity following amputation.
