An attempt to develop a safe and effective "male pill" is making headway, according to preliminary results of a small study. In a four-week trial of men under 50, an experimental hormone-based birth control pill was found to be "well-tolerated."
Researchers have developed what they have dubbed a ‘brain stethoscope’, a device capable of turning EEG brain wave data into sound. The device is able to detect epileptic seizures that do not result in convulsions.
Having an accurate record of food and alcohol intake is important for managing a number of diseases including diabetes, various cardiovascular conditions, and alcoholism. Currently, not much practical technology is available to do this aside from smartphone apps, and apps tend to be tedious and require constant vigilance of making sure to input all the data.
A new generation of brain scanner, that can be worn like a helmet allowing patients to move naturally whilst being scanned, has been developed by researchers at the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre, University of Nottingham and the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging, UCL. It is part of a five-year Wellcome funded project which has the potential to revolutionize the world of human brain imaging.
AUTOMAP offers a number of potential benefits for clinical care, even beyond producing high-quality images in less time with MRI or with lower doses with X-ray, CT and PET. Because of its processing speed, the technique could help in making real-time decisions about imaging protocols while the patient is in the scanner.
Tuesday, March 20th, 2018, Insilico Medicine, a Baltimore-based artificial intelligence company specializing in drug discovery, biomarker development and aging research announced the launch of Insilico Taiwan, a subsidiary focusing on the development and validation of generative adversarial networks(GANs) and reinforcement learning for medicinal chemistry applications.
Using electrochemical stimulation and robot-assisted rehabilitation techniques, researchers restore walking ability in a paraplegic rat. The study reports reorganization of neural branching in the reticular formation leads to new connections and is key to motor skill recovery.
