New treatments for hearing loss may be on the horizon

New treatments for hearing loss may be on the horizon
A new genetic study in mice has identified two proteins that help organise the development of the hair cells that pick up sound waves in the inner ear. Researchers at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD, believe that their findings could hold the key to reversing hearing loss that arises from damaged hair cells. A recent paper in the journal eLife gives a full account of the investigation.

Human brains have evolved to 'prefer' music and speech

Human brains have evolved to 'prefer' music and speech
What makes humans so different from other primates? Though our brains are similar, it seems that they react differently to various stimuli. New evidence suggests that human brains 'listen' for musical pitch, a preference that scientists have not detected in monkeys. Humans and other primates are similar in so many ways, so what sets humans apart, exactly? Scientists have been trying to answer this question for decades with differing degrees of success.

Electronic medical devices are going invisible

Electronic medical devices are going invisible
Wearable tech was born at the point where wireless connected technology grew up and became, paradoxically, smaller. Today, integrated tech that can be discretely worn by users is everywhere – from music and fashion to fitness. Whether it’s smartwatches, heart rate trackers or even clothing, there’s no shortage of integrated, miniaturised tech that allows us to keep tabs on ourselves as we go about our everyday life.

Innovations in tech are changing healthcare as we know it
Nurses work long, demanding hours to meet the needs of today’s ever-expanding patient base.
