Using 3D printing tools, scientists have created a functional ear that can “hear” radio frequencies far beyond the range of normal human capability.
A drug developed by scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, known as J147, reverses memory deficits and slows Alzheimer’s disease in aged mice following short-term treatment. The findings, published May 14 in the journal Alzheimer’s Research and Therapy, may pave the way to a new treatment.
This is a big moment for the deaf, many of whom haven’t been to the movies in a long time. The new glasses display closed captions just for the wearer, and they’re headed for 6,000 theaters across the country.
While expensive cancer drugs linked to premature death and mega-tumors are pushed by many mainstream doctors as the only option outside of chemotherapy, a growing number of informed individuals are consistently opting to instead utilize natural methods that are known to conquer cancer cells and effectively negate the disease — without harsh side effects. One such person, Vicky Stewart of Britain, chose such a path when she refused mainstream medical cancer treatments and instead began consuming powerful turmeric spice.
A man who experienced a nearly constant runny nose was actually leaking brain fluid through his nostrils, according to Fox 10 News.
Joe Nagy of Arizona had suffered from a seemingly endless runny nose. Doctors figured it was just a bad case of allergies, but Nagy’s symptoms were unaffected by medications.
3D Printed Robohand creates a functioning prosthetic at an affordable price.
A chain reaction of toxic proteins may help explain Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other killers—an insight that could lead to desperately needed new treatment options
Hair dye manufacturers are on notice: The cure for gray hair is coming. That’s right, the need to cover up one of the classic signs of aging with chemical pigments will be a thing of the past thanks to a team of European researchers. In a new research report published online in The FASEB Journal people who are going gray develop massive oxidative stress via accumulation of hydrogen peroxide in the hair follicle, which causes our hair to bleach itself from the inside out, and most importantly, the report shows that this massive accumulation of hydrogen peroxide can be remedied with a proprietary treatment developed by the researchers described as a topical, UVB-activated compound called PC-KUS (a modified pseudocatalase). What’s more, the study also shows that the same treatment works for the skin condition, vitiligo.
It’s not a ‘Star Trek’ tricorder, but by hooking a variety of gadgets onto a smartphone you could almost get a complete physical - without the paper gown or even a visit to the doctor’s office.
Losing the sense of smell might be the first indication of dementia.
This may seem like something out of a science fiction movie: researchers have designed microparticles that can be injected directly into the bloodstream to quickly oxygenate your body, even if you can’t breathe anymore. It’s one of the best medical breakthroughs in recent years, and one that could save millions of lives every year.
Lab-grown livers have come a step closer to reality thanks to a 3D printer loaded with cells (see video). Created by Organovo in San Diego, California, future versions of the system could produce chunks of liver for transplant.
A doctor says people can be revived several hours after they have seemingly died. Should this change the way we think about death?
In a serendipitous discovery, scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have found a way to turn bone marrow stem cells directly into brain cells.
