Still pricier than motorized wheelchairs, SuitX’s Phoenix exoskeleton weighs just 27 pounds and is custom-fit to the user’s body.
So-called senescent cells no longer divide, but they secrete a mixture of chemicals that can trigger inflammation, which is involved in many age-related disorders. What if the cells were removed?
Can a brain's connectome be preserved forever?
3D-printed brain mimic by Harvard University scientists reveals the physical folding mechanism of the cortex.
Ageing cells, after losing their mitochondria, showed levels of inflammatory molecules, oxygen free radicals and expression of genes which are among the makers of cellular ageing similar to the level that would be expected in younger cells.
Mitochondria are required for pro‐ageing features of the senescent phenotype
A new biosensor test system based on magnetic nanoparticles.
Rapid dry-reagent immunomagnetic biosensing platform based on volumetric detection of nanoparticles on 3D structures
A microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.
Highly robust crystalsome via directed polymer crystallization at curved liquid/liquid interface
Amodel of how neurons in the brain behave when faced with a complex decision-making process, and how they adapt and learn from mistakes.
Goal-Directed Decision Making with Spiking Neurons
C-section newborns slathered with moms’ secretions may dodge lifelong health problems.
Partial restoration of the microbiota of cesarean-born infants via vaginal microbial transfer
A process that uses pressure to deliver chemical probes in a fine-tuned manner into living cells.
Live-cell protein labelling with nanometre precision by cell squeezing
