Graphene-based implant overcomes technical limitation to record brain activity at extremely low frequencies

The body of knowledge about the human brain is growing exponentially, but questions big and small remain unanswered. Researchers have been using electrode arrays to record the brain’s electrical activity for decades, mapping activity in different brain regions to understand what it looks like when everything is working, and what is happening when it [...]

Viruses as Controllable Nanodevices

Viruses are Nature’s delivery vehicles. Millions of years of evolution have molded them into remarkable machines capable of performing a monumental task vital to their survival: the delivery of genetic material into other organisms. Viruses are shells made up of proteins and sometimes lipids that carry genetic information into cells. The type of genetic [...]

Video – Johannes Lierfeld ‘The control problem of Artificial Intelligence as an ethical challenge’

Note: This videoblog is in German.  It was produced by the Institute of Art & Art Theory of the University of Cologne. Humanity faces epochal challenges in the age of digitization. In particular, the complex field of artificial intelligence is of prominent importance here, because optimists expect AI to solve all problems, while [...]

Updated – NanoApps Medical Inc. Near-Term Projects

NanoApps Medical is investigating the possibility that superparamagnetic nanoparticles (SPIONs) (Figure 1) and other classes of nanoparticles (e.g., gold coated nanoshells) (Figure 2) might have the capacity to target cancerous tumors, metastasizing cancer cells, pathogens, etc. to deactivate/eliminate them via hypothermia. This means that once the nanoparticles are adhered to their targets, they would [...]

Using 3D printing to fabricate shape-conformable batteries

Flexible, wireless electronic devices are rapidly emerging and have reached the level of commercialization; nevertheless, most of battery shapes are limited to either spherical and/or rectangular structures, which results in inefficient space use. Professor Il-Doo Kim’s team from the Department of Materials Science at KAIST has successfully developed technology to significantly enhance the variability [...]

Bacteria-based drug delivery system that outperforms conventional methods

An interdisciplinary team of three Virginia Tech faculty members affiliated with the Macromolecules Innovation Institute has created a drug delivery system that could radically expand cancer treatment options. The conventional cancer treatment method of injecting nanoparticle drugs into the bloodstream results in low efficacy. Due to the complexities of the human body, very few [...]

Insights into magnetic bacteria may guide research into medical nanorobots

Researchers have long studied magnetotactic bacteria (MTB), aquatic microbes that have the ability to orientate themselves to magnetic fields. This unusual behaviour makes them a subject of interest for improving our understanding of biomagnetism, and potentially harnessing their abilities for future technologies, such as medical nanorobots. Neutrons have been used to explore the characteristics [...]
