A new optogenetic tool, a protein that can be controlled by light, has been characterized by researchers at Ruhr-Universität Bochum.
Scientists at Karolinska Institute used an innovative three-dimensional imaging technology to discover that one part of the autonomic nervous system in the liver experiences severe degeneration in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Diseases in the central nervous system (CNS), like Alzheimer’s disease (AD), show up early at the microscopic, or cellular, level deep within the brain.
A newly developed multi-frequency method results in a brief measurement time of just a few seconds rather than the traditional 10 minutes.
According to a new study, thermal imaging techniques can determine whether a specific wound requires additional management, thus serving as an early alert system to enhance chronic wound care.
In 2018, Arthur Ashkin received the Nobel Prize for developing optical tweezers, which employ light in the form of a high-powered laser beam to seize and exploit particles.
A group of physicists, headed by Dr. David Phillips from the University of Exeter, have introduced a new method to regulate light that has been scattered by passage via a single hair-thin strand of optical fiber.
The communication between billions of neurons governs the different states of the brain. This network forms the basis of all human behaviors, memories and perceptions.
Stimulation of the nervous system with neurotechnology has opened up new avenues for treating human disorders
A non-contact laser imaging system could help doctors diagnose and treat eye diseases that cause blindness much earlier than is now possible.
