Yale University neuroscientist Nenad Sestan disclosed that a team he leads had experimented on between 100 and 200 pig brains obtained from a slaughterhouse, restoring their circulation using a system of pumps, heaters, and bags of artificial blood warmed to …

alzheimer'sGene APOE4 causes Alzheimers disease in humans and a fix has been created

No Comments
Researchers have found differences in how Alzheimers disease originates and develops in mice and humans. They determined which gene causes Alzheimers in humans and have developed a fix for it. Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease aren’t the same. Dementia is an …

alzheimer'sRecording memory patterns and feeding back can boost memory by up to 37% in Alzheimers patients

No Comments
Scientists at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and the University of Southern California (USC) have demonstrated the successful implementation of a prosthetic system that uses a person’s own memory patterns to facilitate the brain’s ability to encode and recall memory. …

brainPhosphorous atoms could serve as biochemical qubits for quantum computing in the human brain

No Comments
Researcher Matthew Fisher is leading the $1.2 million QuBrain project to see if the human brain utilizes any quantum computing. Fisher asserts that nuclear spins (at the core of the atom, rather than the surrounding electrons) could provide quantum computing …
