Researchers Uncover Hidden Brain States That Regulate Performance and Decision Making

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Brain activity is driven by encounters with external stimuli and situations, simultaneously occurring with internal mental processes. A team of researchers from Stanford University, with funding from the NIH BRAIN Initiative, has discovered how the brain dynamically handles cognitive tasks while it also is engaged in internal mental processes.

Metabolic imaging targets early signs of disease development

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Obesity, cardiovascular disease, and cancer often begin with early, subtle changes in cell metabolism. Now researchers at Tufts University have developed a non-invasive optical imaging technique that detects these changes, providing an early window of opportunity for new research and potential therapeutic development.

Injectable Bandage Targets Fatal Internal Bleeding

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Products are available to quickly seal surface wounds, but rapidly stopping fatal internal bleeding has proven more difficult. Now, biomedical engineers at Texas A&M University are developing an injectable hydrogel bandage that could save lives in emergencies such as penetrating shrapnel wounds on the battlefield.
