New clinical research offers possibility of future rehabilitation for patients in minimally conscious or vegetative state — ScienceDaily

Non-invasive brain stimulation is to be trialled for the first time alongside advanced brain imaging techniques in patients who are minimally conscious or in a vegetative state. The study builds on promising results from the Centre for Human Brain Health at the University of Birmingham which suggested that non-invasive brain stimulation can improve the success of rehabilitation for non-responsive patients. The RAINDROP trial, a collaboration between the University of Birmingham and The Wellington Hospital, part of HCA Healthcare UK, will…

Fluorescent probe could allow scientists to watch circuits within the brain and link their activity to specific behaviors — ScienceDaily

Using a fluorescent probe that lights up when brain cells are electrically active, MIT and Boston University researchers have shown that they can image the activity of many neurons at once, in the brains of mice. This technique, which can be performed using a simple light microscope, could allow neuroscientists to visualize the activity of circuits within the brain and link them to specific behaviors, says Edward Boyden, the Y. Eva Tan Professor in Neurotechnology and a professor of biological…

Physicists unlock the mystery of thermionic emission in graphene — ScienceDaily

When a metal is heated to a sufficiently high temperature, electrons can be ejected out from the surface in a process known as the thermionic emission, a process that is similar to the evaporation of water molecules from the surface of boiling water. The thermionic emission of electron plays an important role in both fundamental physics and digital electronic technology. Historically, the discovery of thermionic emission enables physicists to produce beams of free-flowing electrons in a vacuum. Such electron beams…

MU’s Harmon seeks to pay research experience forward through new org

During his time at Camdenton High School in central Missouri, Josh Harmon felt the impact of a supportive research apparatus first hand. He won the Missouri Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium and regional International Science and Engineering Fair, eventually placing fourth at the ISEF national competition.

Now a freshman at Mizzou Engineering, he’s working to…

Wayfair DS Explains It All: Anurag Syal on Projection Mapping in 3D

At Wayfair, we do everything we can to help our customers find exactly the products they need to furnish their homes in the style they envision. But creating all of the necessary elements to allow them to do that is not as easy as one might think. Right now, if an artist designs a new stylistic look for a home from scratch, it takes weeks before we actually get to introduce the products in the market to fit that look.…

Discovery in gallium nitride a key enabler of energy efficient electronics — ScienceDaily

Gallium nitride, a semiconductor that revolutionized energy-efficient LED lighting, could also transform electronics and wireless communication, thanks to a discovery made by Cornell researchers. Silicon has long been the king of semiconductors, but it has had a little help. The pure material is often augmented, or “doped,” with impurities like phosphorus or boron to enhance current flow by providing negative charges (electrons) or positive charges (“holes,” the absence of electrons) as needed. In recent years, a newer, sturdier family of…

Cleaning up bad bots (and the climate)

From the very beginning Cloudflare has been stopping malicious bots from scraping websites, or misusing APIs. Over time we’ve improved our bot detection methods and deployed large machine learning models that are able to distinguish real traffic (be it from humans or apps) from malicious bots. We’ve also built a large catalog of good bots to detect things like helpful indexing by search engines. But it’s not enough. Malicious bots continue to be a problem on the Internet and we’ve…

Electric tech could help reverse baldness — ScienceDaily

Few things on earth strike fear into the hearts of men more profoundly than hair loss. But reversing baldness could someday be as easy as wearing a hat, thanks to a noninvasive, low-cost hair-growth-stimulating technology developed by engineers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. “I think this will be a very practical solution to hair regeneration,” says Xudong Wang, a professor of materials science and engineering at UW-Madison. Wang and colleagues published a description of the technology in the journal ACS…

MU’s Cheng named top 100 AI researcher in healthcare
