'Antimemories' could revolutionise neuroscience

'Antimemories' could revolutionise neuroscience
One the most intriguing physics discoveries of the last century was the existence of antimatter, material that exists as the "mirror image" of subatomic particles of matter, such as electrons, protons and quarks, but with the opposite charge. Antimatter deepened our understanding of our universe and the laws of physics, and now the same idea is being proposed to explain something equally mysterious: memory.

Molecule could reduce brain damage in stroke victims

Molecule could reduce brain damage in stroke victims
Research teams separated by 14 hours and 9,000 miles have collaborated to advance prospective treatment for the world's second-leading cause of death. University of Nebraska-Lincoln chemists partnered with medical researchers from the National University of Singapore to develop a molecule that can inhibit an enzyme linked with the onset of stroke.

Monkeys drive wheelchairs using only their thoughts

Monkeys drive wheelchairs using only their thoughts
Neuroscientists at Duke Health have developed a brain-machine interface (BMI) that allows primates to use only their thoughts to navigate a robotic wheelchair. The BMI uses signals from hundreds of neurons recorded simultaneously in two regions of the monkeys’ brains that are involved in movement and sensation.

Device could combat memory loss caused by Alzheimer's

Device could combat memory loss caused by Alzheimer's
UT Southwestern Medical Center has joined a consortium of seven leading universities to develop new technologies to improve memory in people with traumatic brain injury, mild cognitive impairment, epilepsy, and Alzheimer's disease. Specifically, UT Southwestern is part of a study with the goal of developing an implantable neural monitoring and stimulation system by the end of 2018 that would treat memory loss.

Skin cells destroy deadly remnants of brain tumour

Skin cells destroy deadly remnants of brain tumour
In a first for medical science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill pharmacy researchers turn skin cells into cancer-hunting stem cells that destroy brain tumors known as glioblastoma, a discovery that can offer, for the first time in more than 30 years, a new and more effective treatment for the disease. The technique, reported in Nature Communications, builds upon the newest version of the Nobel Prize-winning technology from 2007, which allowed researchers to turn skin cells into embryonic-like stem cells.

‘Mini-Brains’ created in lab to study neurological diseases

Researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health say they have developed tiny 'mini-brains' made up of many of the neurons and cells of the human brain – and even some of its functionality – and which can be replicated on a large scale.

Disabled violinist composes for the first time in 27 years

Disabled violinist composes for the first time in 27 years
Rosemary Johnson was a promising violinist and member of the Welsh National Opera Orchestra when she was involved in a devastating car crash 27 years ago. The accident left her in a coma for seven months, and the resulting brain damage has robbed her of most of her ability to talk and move. But thanks to new software that reads people's brain waves, Johnson has been able to compose music for the first time since 1988, and has had the chance to have it played to her in real time by a professional string quartet.

Graphene shown to safely interact with neurons in the brain

Graphene shown to safely interact with neurons in the brain
Researchers have successfully demonstrated how it is possible to interface graphene – a two-dimensional form of carbon – with neurons, or nerve cells, while maintaining the integrity of these vital cells. The work may be used to build graphene-based electrodes that can safely be implanted in the brain, offering promise for the restoration of sensory functions for amputee or paralysed patients, or for individuals with motor disorders such as epilepsy or Parkinson’s disease.

Using VR neurofeedback to help stroke patients recover

Using VR neurofeedback to help stroke patients recover
Imagine wanting to take a sip of your morning coffee. To accomplish this, your brain must send a signal that will pass from neuron to neuron all the way down your arm, to your hand, to your fingers. Your fingers will then grasp the coffee and bring it to your lips and then you can enjoy the caffeine fix.

Smart socks help with diabetic neuropathy

Smart socks help with diabetic neuropathy
Diabetic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage associated with the development of foot ulcers in patients with diabetes. Resulting from anatomical deformation, excessive pressure and poor blood supply, it affects over 130m individuals worldwide. It is also the leading cause of amputation, costing the United States economy alone more than $10bn annually.
