Supercomputer helps in the search for 'memory molecules'

Supercomputer helps in the search for 'memory molecules'
Until now, searching for genes related to memory capacity has been comparable to seeking out the proverbial "needle in a haystack." Scientists at the University of Basel made use of the CSCS supercomputer Piz Daint to discover interrelationships in the human genome that might simplify the search for "memory molecules" and eventually lead to more effective medical treatment for people with diseases that are accompanied by memory disturbance.

Powerful X-rays enable navigational view of the brain

Powerful X-rays enable navigational view of the brain
If brain imaging could be compared to Google Earth, neuroscientists would already have a pretty good 'satellite view' of the brain, and a great 'street view' of neuron details. But navigating how the brain computes is arguably where the action is, and neuroscience's 'navigational map view' has been a bit meager. Now, a research team led by Eva Dyer, a computational neuroscientist and electrical engineer, has imaged brains at that map-like or "meso" scale using the most powerful X-ray beams in the country.

Brain-machine interfaces treat neurological disease

Brain-machine interfaces treat neurological disease
Since the 19th century at least, humans have wondered what could be accomplished by linking our brains – smart and flexible but prone to disease and disarray – directly to technology in all its cold, hard precision. Writers of the time dreamed up intelligence enhanced by implanted clockwork and a starship controlled by a transplanted brain. While these remain inconceivably far-fetched, the melding of brains and machines for treating disease and improving human health is now a reality.

SenTiva neurostimulator for epilepsy receives FDA approval

SenTiva neurostimulator for epilepsy receives FDA approval
LivaNova has won FDA approvals for its newest vagus nerve stimulation system for treating epilepsy in patients as young as four years old. The system, which includes the SenTiva implantable neurostimulator and the VNS Therapy Programming system, monitors brain activity and delivers therapy when it believes a seizure may be imminent. During therapy it continues its monitoring routine, increasing its stimulation if it detects its initial attempts failed to prevent a seizure.

Neural probe to power brain-computer interfaces

Neural probe to power brain-computer interfaces
Imec has announced at its Imec Technology Forum (ITF) Health event, that is has designed and fabricated a demonstrator of a neural probe with unprecedented electrode density within the framework Neuroseeker, a large-scale EU-project. Designed and fabricated in silicon chip technology, the probe is suitable for breakthrough bio-interfaces and implants that will shape the future of neuroscience.

Stanford psychologists simplify brain-imaging data

Stanford psychologists simplify brain-imaging data
Neuroscience research has made incredible strides toward revealing the inner workings of our brains thanks in part to technological advances, but barriers in sharing and accessing that data stymie progress in the field. Stanford psychologists are addressing those barriers through a new way of organising brain-imaging data that simplifies data analysis and helps researchers collaborate more effectively – they call it BIDS (Brain Imaging Data Structure).

Molecules may protect brain from neurodegenerative diseases

Molecules may protect brain from neurodegenerative diseases
Research led by Nicolas Bazan, MD, PhD, Boyd Professor and Director of the Neuroscience Center of Excellence at LSU Health New Orleans, has discovered a new class of molecules in the brain that synchronise cell-to-cell communication and neuroinflammation/immune activity in response to injury or diseases. Elovanoids (ELVs) are bioactive chemical messengers made from omega-3 very long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (VLC-PUFAs,n-3). They are released on demand when cells are damaged or stressed.

Robotic system is capable of monitoring specific neurons

Robotic system is capable of monitoring specific neurons
Recording electrical signals from inside a neuron in the living brain can reveal a great deal of information about that neuron’s function and how it coordinates with other cells in the brain. However, performing this kind of recording is extremely difficult. To make this technique more widely available, MIT engineers have now devised a way to automate the process, using a computer algorithm that analyses microscope images and guides a robotic arm to the target cell.

Lund University opens research programmes within brain research

Lund University opens research programmes within brain research
  During the Science Week The Amazing Brain from 4 to 10 September (link to programme on lunduniversity.lu.se), Lund University will invite the public on an exciting trip into our mental universe! New ways of studying the brain are continually being developed, thereby also broadening the research field, which currently spans many disciplines.
