  • Sensor Reads Signs of Oncoming Aggression in Autism
    by Medgadget Editors on August 23, 2019 at 4:07 pm

    Many people who suffer from autism experience periods when they become aggressive, something that tends to come out of the blue. Those taking care of such folks have a hard time managing such episodes, particularly because there’s no warning and there’s no time to take mitigating actions. Now, researchers at Northeastern University have developed a […]

  • Motion Sickness Study to Mitigate Motion Sickness in Self-Driving Cars
    by Medgadget Editors on August 23, 2019 at 3:45 pm

    Motion sickness is slated to become a more prominent problem once self-driving cars become a commonality. Interiors of vehicles are expected to be much different than those of today’s forward-facing cars, including blackout windows with TVs inside for playing video games and watching movies. Even those not prone to motion sickness may have trouble when […]

  • Flexible Transistors for Body-Worn and Implantable Medical Devices
    by Medgadget Editors on August 22, 2019 at 4:12 pm

    Recently, engineers in a variety of institutions have been making great progress in the field of flexible electronics. A variety of devices have been made, including completely flexible body-worn sensors. While a great deal of the components have indeed been created to be flexible, integrated circuits and the transistors that they’re made of have had […]

  • Tourette Syndrome Treated with Functional MRI
    by Medgadget Editors on August 22, 2019 at 3:36 pm

    Researchers at Yale University have for the first time showed that it is possible to control the symptoms of Tourette Syndrome using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The researchers recruited twenty one 11 to 19 year-olds and used real-time fMRI neurofeedback (rt-fMRI-NF), a technology that lets patients monitor their own brain activity, to control the […]

  • New Optical Method for Functional Brain Imaging
    by Siavash Parkhideh on August 22, 2019 at 1:35 pm

    Researchers from the University of Birmingham in the UK and Washington University School of Medicine have developed a new non-invasive brain imaging method for studying the shape of the brain’s surface and oxygenation of brain tissues. Their discovery enables deeper brain imaging with higher resolution than prior studies with similar capabilities. This exciting development can […]
