Smart microrobots that can adapt to their surroundings

Scientists have developed tiny elastic robots that can change shape depending on their surroundings. Modeled after bacteria and fully biocompatible, these robots optimize their movements so as to get to hard-to-reach areas of the human body. They stand to revolutionize targeted drug delivery. One day we may be able to ingest tiny robots that deliver … More Smart microrobots that can adapt to their surroundings

University of Otago research to better understand how bacteria and their viruses interact and evolve will enable future studies to exploit the use … More Potential biotech and health applications with new knowledge on bacteria and viruses

Synaptic logic for connections between two brain hemispheres

Researchers have developed a new combination of technologies that allows them to identify the functional properties of individual synapses that link the two hemispheres and determine how they are arranged within a neuron’s dendritic field. Researchers at the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience have developed a new combination of technologies that allows them to … More Synaptic logic for connections between two brain hemispheres
