As Brain Organoids Mature, Ethical Questions Arise

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

…from 2017/2018 that helped me understand the creation of Master Splinter.

Inserting human “mini-brains” into rodents has the potential to broaden scientists’ understanding of neurological disease, but raises quandaries about consciousness.

‘Sewing machine’ robot paves the way for brain computers

Posted by in categories: internet, robotics/AI

Imagine being able to play a song on your computer just by thinking of its title. Or transmitting your thoughts to a friend over the internet without uttering a word. Scientists have now invented a ‘sewing machine’ capable of stitching electrodes into the brain, which may one day help to make such things a reality.

Small ‘half-watch’ worn on leg could transform recovery from stroke

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Patients recovering from a stroke can slash their risk of blood clots by wearing a small “half wrist-watch” around their leg, a trial has shown.

A study at Royal Stoke University Hospital found the geko device could reduces the risk of clots compared to standard treatment, is comfortable to wear and could save the NHS cash.

Approved for use on the NHS for other conditions, the geko is a battery-powered, disposable, device designed to increase blood flow in the deep veins of the legs.

Physicists Observe Quantum Behavior in Liquid Vibrations

Posted by in category: quantum physics

For the first time, Yale physicists have directly observed quantum behavior in the vibrations of a liquid body.

A great deal of ongoing research is currently devoted to discovering and exploiting quantum effects in the motion of macroscopic objects made of solids and gases. This new experiment opens a potentially rich area of further study into the way quantum principles work on liquid bodies.

The findings come from the Yale lab of physics and applied physics professor Jack Harris, along with colleagues at the Kastler Brossel Laboratory in France. A study about the research appears in the journal Physical Review Letters.

Sonar ‘Accidentally’ Detects 16th-Century Dutch Shipwreck

Posted by in category: futurism

In what is being hailed as a lucky accident, a salvage team looking for containers that had fallen off a transport ship in Dutch waters discovered a 16th-century shipwreck on the North Sea floor.

Copper plates and wooden beams were found on the vessel, which dates back to 1540, making it the oldest find of a seafaring ship in Dutch waters ever, according to the Netherlands Cultural Heritage Agency.
