Researchers have successfully replicated an entire, viable glioblastoma brain tumor via 3D bioprinting. The bioprinted tumor includes a complex system of blood vessel-like tubes through which blood cells and drug molecules can flow, simulating a real tumor.
MIT researchers have developed a new, lightweight robotic hand that provides tactile feedback and is dexterous enough to perform tasks like zipping a suitcase and pouring juice.
"Neurograins" brain-computer interfaces independently record electrical impulses and send signals wirelessly to a central hub that coordinates and processes the signals.
Researchers have developed a new brain organoid model to study the mechanistic causes of Alzheimer's disease and test dementia drugs currently in development.
A new touch-sensing glove can feel pressure and other tactile stimuli, researchers report. The glove has applications for those with motor function disorders and could be adapted from virtual reality gaming experiences.
Non-invasive brain stimulation, such as rTMS, helps to reduce smoking frequency in nicotine-dependent people, a new study reports. Stimulating the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex with repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation significantly reduced smoking frequency.
A new hydrogel that acts as a gateway to transfer stem cells into the brain and facilitate repair to damaged tissue may effectively treat neurological conditions like Parkinson's disease and stroke.
A new system translates EEG data into a 3D movie which shows activity in all recorded regions of the brain. The heat map shows where seizures start and spread throughout the patient's brain, in addition to evaluating the speed of activity during a seizure.
A novel helmet that generates a noninvasive oscillating magnetic field was able to reduce tumor mass by 31% in a glioblastoma brain cancer patient.
A new brain-machine interface allows wearers to wirelessly control a wheelchair or robotic arm by simply imagining an action. The neuroprosthesis could help improve the quality of life for those with disabilities.
