A dishwasher for the brain

IMG_1441

Research shows that lymphatic vessels extend to the brain and this has significant implications for a wide variety of brain diseases, including dementia, multiple sclerosis, stroke and traumatic brain injury. This system, called glymphatic, is said to be a dishwasher for the brain. Previously the brain was seen only as a bunch of nerve cells or as a computer. This finding relates to research showing the importance of sleep to help your brain function well. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/when-scientists-saw-the-mouse-heads-glowing-they-knew-the-discovery-was-big/2017/05/19/f33cc574-246a-11e7-a1b3-faff0034e2de_story.html?

Robotic eye surgery

IMG_1350

Remotely operated robots have recently been used to perform eye operations. These robots were able to produce better results than traditional methods, signaling a turning point in the future of robot-assisted surgeries. Robots can provide steady heads and hands, which will be especially useful for clinical treatments that require precision and stability. Testing such systems by operating on eyes, which are very sensitive, yet not vital human organs, seems like an ideal step forward. https://futurism.com/for-the-first-time-ever-a-robot-performed-an-operation-inside-a-human-eye/
