In an experiment with science fiction implications, neurologists say they taught monkeys to play a game by stimulating their brains with electrodes.
Biohybrid bot could one day deliver drugs or do surgery
The most commonly discussed gene editing method these days is CRISPR/Cas9. Here’s what you need to know about how it works.
Advance spreads optimism for gene therapy approach
The discovery that Zika virus kills brain cancer stem cells suggests a potential treatment for glioblastoma, the most common form of brain cancer.
Honey bees really are tiny hardworking superheroes of the insect world – not only do they keep our agriculture going by pollinating many of our crops, but they also produce a myriad of beneficial substances, like honey and beeswax.
Scientists aim to 3D print human tissue so they can better study how new drugs interact with our bodies. A recent advance? 3D printed blood vessels.
Researchers have developed much more advanced RNA biocomputers that can handle more computations and complex logic. Ribocomputing is coming of age.
Imagine buzzing the skin over an internal wound with an electrical device and having it heal over just a few days – that’s the promise of new nanochip technology that can reprogram cells to replace tissue or even whole organs.
Batteries powered by bacteria could prove highly useful in providing spurts of electricity where it isn’t readily available. The latest breakthrough in this area calls only on bodily fluids, and was able to power an LED light using a single drop of spit.
