New research has found that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist. The finding means the textbooks will have to be rewritten.
Leukocyte (white blood cell) telomere length in study participants up to 115 years of age. Statistical regression lines belonging to these groups are indicated by the same color as the data. (credit: Yasumichi Arai et al./EBioMedicine) According scientists at Newcastle University’s Institute for Ageing in the U.K. and Keio University School of Medicine, they say they have cracked […]
Scientists first grew mini-hearts in a lab. Then they 3D printed skin. Now scientists have taken “body on a chip” to a whole new level.
MIT senior, Christina Tringides, holds a sample of the multifunction fiber. MIT researchers reveal an interface that could make plugging our brain into a computer a reality. Their system uses new fibers less than a width of a hair that could deliver optical signals and drugs directly into the brain, along with electrical readouts to continuously […]
90 year old grandmother tries Oculus Rift Nearly 50 million people worldwide suffer from dementia. It is a devastating disease that leaves individuals as shells of their former selves.

Stroke victims could have more time to seek treatment that could reduce harmful effects on the brain, thanks to tiny blobs of gelatin that could deliver the medication to the brain non-invasively.
A new paper claims to demonstrate that neutrinos not only travel faster than the speed of light, but have the brain-twisting characteristic of “imaginary mass”, a property that means they actually speed up as they lose energy.
(CNN) Bold claims for new battery technology have been around since the invention of the lead-acid battery more than 150 years ago. But researchers at Manchester University in the UK say their latest discovery involving the new wonder material graphene could be the most revolutionary advance in battery technology yet.
San Francisco to Los Angeles in 35 minutes flat—that was the dream of the Hyperloop. Back in 2013, Elon Musk introduced the world to this dream with a 60-page white paper. The paper caused a stir. The idea—a levitating, solar-power, supersonic train—was both pure geek porn and a transportation revolution in the making. It definitely […]
