Promising Treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury

A new study performed on rats shows promise in helping fight against the harmful effects of traumatic brain injury. Traumatic brain injury causes a decrease in blood flow in the cerebrum of the brain. If blood flow is prolonged, it could lead to death or permanent cell dysfunction. The endothelin receptor A (ETrA), a receptor […]

Nanoscopy delivers sharp images from the living mouse brain

To explore the most intricate structures of the brain in order to decipher how it functions – Stefan Hell’s team of researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen has made a significant step closer to this goal. Using the STED microscopy developed by Hell, the scientists have, for the first time, managed to […]

Bluetooth EEG – Fighting Epilepsy Wirelessly

Bluetooth EEG – Fighting Epilepsy Wirelessly

According to, an EEG, which is the name used for electroencephalography, is a test used to diagnose epilepsy by monitoring the activity of the brain. This test shows patterns of abnormal brain electrical activity that occur due to a number of different conditions, including epilepsy. With wireless EEG, patients do not have to be confined […]
