Successful instrument guidance through deep and convoluted blood vessel networks
05/12/2019 - Researchers have developed a novel approach to tackling one of the biggest challenges of endovascular surgery: how to reach the most difficult-to-access physiological locations. Their solution is a...
Enabling autonomous vehicles to see around corners
29/10/2019 - To improve the safety of autonomous systems, MIT engineers have developed a system that can sense tiny changes in shadows on the ground to determine if there's a moving object coming around the...
Excess weight and body fat cause cardiovascular disease
18/06/2019 - In the first Mendelian randomization study to look at this, researchers have found evidence that excess weight and body fat cause a range of heart and blood vessel diseases, rather than just being...
Reaching and grasping: Learning fine motor coordination changes the brain
14/06/2019 - When we train the reaching for and grasping of objects, we also train our brain. In other words, this action brings about changes in the connections of a certain neuronal population in the red...
How do foams collapse?
10/06/2019 - Researchers have successfully found two distinct mechanisms by which foams can collapse, yielding insight into the prevention/acceleration of foam rupture in industrial materials e.g. foods,...
Better together: human and robot co-workers
27/05/2019 - More and more processes are being automated. Self-driving delivery vehicles are finding their way into many areas. However, an interdisciplinary research team has observed that cooperation between...
Long-term decline in stroke greater in older adults
17/05/2019 - Although the occurrence of first-ever ischemic stroke (strokes due to a blood clot that blocks a blood vessel in the brain) at middle age has been decreasing over time, researchers have found that...
Train your brain with computer game to eat less sugar
14/05/2019 - A recent study shows that a computer game can be used to train its players to eat less sugar, as way of reducing their weight and improving their health.
Opportunistic cancer cells 'slip through the gaps' to spread through blood vessels
06/05/2019 - Cancer cells may rely on opportunism, as well as chemical signalling, to spread through the body, according to new findings by mathematicians.
Injections, exercise promote muscle regrowth after atrophy in mice
03/05/2019 - By injecting cells that support blood vessel growth into muscles depleted by inactivity, researchers say they are able to help restore muscle mass lost as a result of immobility.
System to legally test GPS spoofing vulnerabilities in automated vehicles
03/05/2019 - Scientists have developed a cyber security system to test for vulnerabilities in automated vehicles and other technologies that use GPS receivers for positioning, navigation and timing.
Researchers investigate differences in coatings of drug-coated balloon catheters
03/05/2019 - Drug-coated balloon catheters to open narrowed blood vessels and to deliver drugs to the impacted sites are used frequently for the treatment of peripheral arterial disease. Scientists believe...
Which car crashes cause traumatic brain injury?
03/05/2019 - Motor vehicle crashes are one of the most common causes of TBI-related emergency room visits, hospitalizations and deaths. Yet, much of TBI research is focused on military or sports-related injuries....
Electric vehicle adoption improves air quality and climate outlook
15/04/2019 - A new study quantified the differences in air pollution generated from battery-powered electric vehicles versus internal combustion engines. The researchers found that even when their electricity is...
Biochemical switches identified that could be triggered to treat muscle, brain disorders
12/04/2019 - Scientists have found that the enzymes ULK1 and ULK2 play a key role in breaking down cell structures called stress granules, whose persistence leads to toxic buildup of proteins that kill muscle and...
How light therapy might help premature babies avoid vision problems
03/04/2019 - Scientists discovered a light-dependent molecular pathway that regulates how blood vessels develop in the eye. The findings suggest it may be possible to use light therapy to help premature infants...
Creating blood vessels on demand
03/04/2019 - Researchers discover new cell population that can help in regenerative processes.
New, more realistic simulator will improve self-driving vehicle safety before road testing
29/03/2019 - Scientists have developed data-driven simulation technology that combines photos, videos, real-world trajectory, and behavioral data into a scalable, realistic autonomous driving simulator.
Fountain of youth for heart health may lie in the gut
21/03/2019 - As our collection of resident gut bacteria changes with age, it increasingly produces harmful metabolites that damage veins and blood vessels, driving disease, a new study suggests.
