Machine learning speeds up search for new sustainable materials
Researchers from Konica Minolta and the Nara Institute of Science and Technology in Japan have developed a machine learning method to identify sustainable alternatives for composite materials.
World's smallest optical implantable biodevice
Japanese researchers describe a new implantable device no bigger than the width of a coin that can be used to control brain patterns. The device, which can be read about in AIP Advances, converts infrared light into blue light to control neural activity and is both the smallest and lightest wireless optical biodevice to be reported. For centuries, it has been known that chemicals can change neural behaviour.
Brain-cooling simulation treatment could help treat epilepsy
Using computer simulation techniques, scientists have gained new insights into the mechanism by which lowering the temperature of specific brain regions could potentially treat epileptic seizures. The results are published in PLOS Computational Biology. About 50 million people worldwide deal with sudden, recurring seizures that are the hallmark of epilepsy.
