The latest generation of the RoboBee hybrid robot could help monitor the environment and provide essential search and rescue assistance, researchers report.
Using robotics, researchers uncover mechanisms in the cerebellum and spinal cord that determine how the nervous system responds to induced changes in step length. The findings could have implications for physical rehabilitation programs for people with movement disorders.
Researchers have developed a new 3D printing technique that enables faster and cheaper models of patient specific medical data for research and diagnostics.
Physarum polycephalum, a brainless slime mold, uses its body to sense chemical cues in its environment and performs complex calculations, similar to what humans consider to be thinking, to decide on the direction to grow based on the information presented.
