Optical tweezers unveil the secret of muscle power

Optical tweezers unveil the secret of muscle power
Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have measured the forces acting between the building blocks titin and α-actinin which stabilise the heart muscle. The human body is a never-ending construction site: Proteins are permanently being decomposed and replaced. But this perpetual reconstruction does not inhibit the body’s functionality.

Optogenetics fine-tuned

Optogenetics fine-tuned
Currently, optogenetics is a blunt-force instrument for manipulating neural activity, which limits its usefulness in the delicate environment of the brain. Researchers have demonstrated that optogenetics can be used as a finely tempered tool to observe and manipulate neural activity. Recent reports have emerged providing the opportunity to balance out excitation and inhibition of neural circuits using optogenetic techniques.

No more searching in vein

No more searching in vein
Now with HD imaging and Df2 technology, Christie Medical can find the best venepuncture site when taking blood and try and avoid those oh so common complications. Instead of the nurses having to fiddle around and try to find a vein in several parts of your arm and body, VeinViewer is an imaging device which uses near-infrared light that is absorbed by the blood and then reflected by surrounding tissue.

Retinal imaging technique gives a closer look at the eye

Retinal imaging technique gives a closer look at the eye
Researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center have developed a new imaging technique that could revolutionise how eye health and disease are assessed. The group is first to be able to make out individual cells at the back of the eye that are implicated in vision loss in diseases like glaucoma. They hope their new technique could prevent vision loss via earlier diagnosis and treatment for these diseases.

Project aiming to advance medical imaging

 Project aiming to advance medical imaging
As medical imaging is becoming increasingly important, an EU-China network has been established in order to overcome the challenge of storing and retrieving these images. Searching archives of digital images using text descriptors is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. This phenomenon also applies to medical imaging.
