What Do Your Eyes Say? Device Can Diagnose Diseases Based on Eyelid Motion

Some say the eyes are a window to the soul. Now, thanks to researchers at the Technion, the eyes (or at least the motion of a person's eyelids) can also be used to diagnose eye diseases and neurologically expressed diseases, including Parkinson’s disease.

De-Jargonizing Program Helps Decode Science Speak

Science is fascinating to many, but sentences about research full of expert-level terms and descriptions can scare away even the most passionate audiences. Now, scientists have created a free, scientist-friendly “De-Jargonizer” they hope will make science and research accessible to the public.
