More than one million artificial pacemakers are implanted in patients across the globe annually due to abnormal heart rhythms. The devices are placed in the chest or abdomen, using electrical … Continue Reading Biological pacemakers produced from human fat cells.
When a person looks at an object, each eye sees it from a slightly different angle and sends those binocular-based pictures back to the brain. The differences between the two … Continue Reading Neurons responsible for 3D vision identified.
Olfactory receptors (ORs) are expressed in the olfactory epithelium of the nose to detect common odorants in the environment, they have also been mapped outside of the olfactory system in … Continue Reading Researchers begin big push in ‘crucial’ research of extranasal olfactory receptors.
The unique properties of naturally occurring immune cells in the human body have inspired many efforts to synthetically engineer a unit capable of mimicking their behaviors. Now, a study from … Continue Reading Researchers develop synthetic T cells, that function like the human version.
With the rapid advancement of robotic research, it has become increasingly important to develop biomimetic micro- or nanorobots capable of translating biological principles into robotic systems. Now, a study from … Continue Reading Biomimetic nanobots clear bacteria and toxins from blood.
Unchanged for decades, breast screening technology such as mammograms can be painful and generally rely on anatomical differences with several limitations. These include the lack of phenotyping to identify aggressive … Continue Reading Researchers use non-invasive ‘diagnostic pill’ to detect breast cancer in mice.
