A Human Brain Model in a Petri Dish?

Case Western Reserve University

Research scientists around the world are now able to investigate the structural, cellular, and developmental intricacies of the human brain using bioengineered stem cell-based models called organoids. But the ethics to help guide researchers and regulators lag behind the technological capability to “grow” brains in a petri dish. That is about to change as a group of bioethicists and scientists chart the unexplored territory of neuroethics, which is quickly emerging from the ability to bioengineer models of the brain. The study, called “The Brainstorm Project,” will be led by Insoo Hyun, PhD, professor of bioethics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.

Long-Running Study Identifies Modifiable Dementia Risk Factor in Older Adults

Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh

Stiffness of the aorta – more so than blood pressure or subclinical brain disease – is a key risk factor for dementia. Since aortic stiffness can be reduced by medication and healthy lifestyle changes, these results suggest that people can still lower their dementia risk well into old age.

Holographic Images Increase Accuracy of External Ventricular Drain Insertion

Journal of Neurosurgery

Researchers from Beijing have developed a new technique of external ventricular drain (EVD) insertion that involves the use of a mixed-reality holographic computer headset. Wearing this headset, the neurosurgeon can visualize holographic images of individual patients’ brain structures while performing the procedure. This makes EVD insertion more accurate than the usual freehand technique, which relies only on referral to external anatomical landmarks.

Linguistic Red Flags From Facebook Posts Can Predict Future Depression Diagnoses

Stony Brook University

What if an algorithm could scan social media and point to linguistic red flags for depression before a formal medical diagnosis had been made? New research published to be published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows this is now more plausible than ever.
