Smart Chip Developed to Connect Brain Signals to Prosthetic Limbs

Scientists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore have developed a small smart chip that can be paired with neural implants for efficient wireless transmission of brain signals to inner organs that can be monitored from outside. Neural implants when embedded in the brain can reverse the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease or give paraplegic people the ability to move their dead or ...

Researchers Isolate Immune Gene That Can Cure Parkinson’s, Dementia

A research team at University of Copenhagen, Denmark, has discovered that non-inheritable Parkinson’s disease may be caused by functional changes in the immune regulating gene Interferon-beta (IFNβ) and targeted treatment with IFNβ-gene therapy can successfully prevent its neuronal death and the disease effects. The results, published in the journal Cell, show that the immune gene IFNβ plays a vital role ...

Bone stem cells may regenerate bones, cartilage with huge future potential: study

Scientists have identified stem cells that are capable of regenerating both bone and cartilage in bone marrow of mice, with future potential in humans too to regenerate limbs lost in accidents. The concept may be familiar in both Bollywood and Hollywood movies, but for the first time researchers have identified the particular stem cells in bone marrow that can be ...
