Sentinel Cerebral Protection System receives FDA Clearance

Sentinel Cerebral Protection System receives FDA Clearance
Claret Medical has announced that it has received regulatory clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the Sentinel Cerebral Protection System (CPS), via de novo classification, enabling U.S. commercialisation of the device. The Sentinel is the first and only device available in the U.S. that offers protection against the risk of stroke by capturing and removing debris dislodged during transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) before it reaches the brain.

Combining MRI and optical microscopy improves brain research

Combining MRI and optical microscopy improves brain research
  Functional magnetic resonance imaging reveals changes in blood-oxygen levels in different parts of the brain, but the data show nothing about what is actually happening in and between brain cells, information needed to better understand brain circuitry and function.

Noninvasive method helps patients with brain diseases

Noninvasive method helps patients with brain diseases
MIT researchers, collaborating with investigators at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and the IT’IS Foundation, have come up with a way to stimulate regions deep within the brain using electrodes placed on the scalp. This approach could make deep brain stimulation noninvasive, less risky, less expensive, and more accessible to patients.

What's love got to do with it?

What's love got to do with it?
A team of neuroscientists from Emory University's Silvio O. Conte Center for Oxytocin and Social Cognition has discovered a key connection between areas of the adult female prairie vole's brain reward system that promotes the emergence of pair bonds. Results from this study, could help efforts to improve social abilities in human disorders with impaired social function, such as autism. In addition to the online posting, the study is expected to be in Nature.

Neuron works as a human GPS

Neuron works as a human GPS
An international research team led by the University of Amsterdam researchers Jeroen Bos, Martin Vinck and Cyriel Pennartz has identified a new type of neuron which might play a vital role in humans' ability to navigate their environments. The discovery is an important step towards understanding how the brain codes navigation behaviour at larger scales and could potentially open up new treatment strategies for people with impaired topographical orientation like Alzheimer's patients.

Neurons can learn temporal patterns

Neurons can learn temporal patterns
  Individual neurons can learn not only single responses to a particular signal, but also a series of reactions at precisely timed intervals. This is what emerges from a study at Lund University in Sweden.

Brain-imaging uses ‘multi-pupil’ prism arrays

Brain-imaging uses ‘multi-pupil’ prism arrays
A specialised type of adaptive-optics technology that has been demonstrated by taking high-resolution time-lapse images of functioning brain cells might be used to better understand how the brain works. The system is capable of revealing changing details of biological processes in cells over a larger field of view than otherwise possible, allowing “high throughput” essential for the study of brain activity.

Unveiling assessment of risks and rewards before acting

Unveiling assessment of risks and rewards before acting
When animals hunt or forage for food, they must constantly weigh whether the chance of a meal is worth the risk of being spotted by a predator. The same conflict between cost and benefit is at the heart of many of the decisions humans make on a daily basis. The ability to instantly consider contradictory information from the environment and decide how to act is essential for survival. It’s also a key feature of mental health.

Assembling working human forebrain circuits in a lab dish

Assembling working human forebrain circuits in a lab dish
Peering into laboratory glassware, Stanford University School of Medicine researchers have watched stem-cell-derived nerve cells arising in a specific region of the human brain migrate into another brain region. This process recapitulates what's been believed to occur in a developing fetus, but has never previously been viewed in real time. The investigators saw the migrating nerve cells, or neurons, hook up with other neurons in the target region to form functioning circuits characteristic of the cerebral cortex.

Technology aims to accelerate learning

Technology aims to accelerate learning
The adage “put your thinking caps on” might evoke visions of an elementary classroom, where a teacher has just admonished cherubic little learners about to embark on a particularly difficult academic adventure. In today’s high-stakes world, where we all need to think, learn or act quickly, the adage still rings true: Mastering a new task, skill or information often takes the right environment, mindset, sharp focus and lots of hard work, repetition and time.
