Researchers from the OHSU Casey Eye Institute in Portland, Oregon, have broken new ground in science, medicine, and surgery — the first gene editing procedure in a living person. For the first time, scientists are altering DNA in a living human.
As climate change intensifies and human activity impacts every corner of the planet, repairing our world increasingly means realizing that our fate is intertwined with that of other animal and plant species — not separate from theirs — and that we must think and act accordingly.
Brain–computer interfaces (BCIs) can restore communication to people who have lost the ability to move or speak. Our results open a new approach for BCIs and demonstrate the feasibility of accurately decoding rapid, dexterous movements years after paralysis. A brain–computer interface enables rapid communication through neural decoding of attempted handwriting movements in a person with paralysis.
Study of medical studies reveals ancient aboriginal memory technique superior. Australian scientists have compared an ancient Greek technique of memorizing data to an even older technique from Aboriginal culture, using students in a rural medical school.
