Pioneering EEG test could dramatically increase early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s

A simple but revolutionary approach to early Alzheimer’s diagnosis is being pioneered by researchers through an initiative that could pave the way for improved outcomes for individuals who develop the…

Artificial intelligence helps diagnose leukemia

Researchers at the University of Bonn show how machine learning improves the evaluation of blood analysis data. The presence of cancer of the lymphatic system is often determined by analyzing…

New microscopy technique reveals activity of one million neurons across the mouse brain

Capturing the intricacies of the brain’s activity demands resolution, scale, and speed—the ability to visualize millions of neurons with crystal clear resolution as they actively call out from distant corners…

Technology takes the art of origami into the fight against COVID-19

3D-printed origami technology at the heart of low-cost, portable ventilators aimed at improving pandemic treatment and revolutionizing healthcare delivery. Researchers in Simon Fraser University’s Additive Manufacturing Lab are replicating a…

Electronic nose can sniff out when a lung transplant is failing

An electronic “nose” is capable of detecting with 86% accuracy when a lung transplant is beginning to fail, according to research presented at the ‘virtual’ European Respiratory Society International Congress…

Imaging single spine structural plasticity at the nanoscale level

Researchers at the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI) have developed a new imaging technique capable of visualizing the dynamically changing structure of dendritic spines with unprecedented resolution. For…

Portable sequencing platform for SARS-CoV-2 monitoring to developing countries

Genomic sequencing, rare in low-income countries, identifies and tracks variants of the virus that cause COVID-19. Variant tracking enables local governments and hospitals to make better-informed decisions to lower infections…

‘ASCENT’ makes it easier to study the electrical stimulation of nerves

Computational platform allows non-experts to create patient-specific, 3D models of nerves being electrically stimulated. Biomedical engineers at Duke University have developed an open-source software platform that automates 3D electrical nerve…
