Scientists Create 3D Model That Mimics Brain Function"A doughnut created in a lab and made of silk on the outside and collagen gel where the jelly ought to be can mimic a basic function of brain tissue, scientists have found. Bioengineers produced a kind of rudimentary gray matter and white matter in a dish, along with rat neurons that signaled one another across the doughnut’s center. When the scientists dropped weights on the material to simulate traumatic injury, the neurons in the 3D bra...

What Happens When You Drop A Magnet Through A Copper Tube? (so cool!!!) ~~tko
A system designed at Georgia Institute of Technology enables people with high-level spinal cord injuries to operate a computer and electrically powered wheelchair by moving their tongues. The Tongue Drive, as the system is called, now in prototype, allows a user to wear a dental retainer completely inside the mouth embedded with sensors to control the system (pictured above). The sensors track the location of a tiny magnet attached to the user’s tongue.
