    A neuroscientist, at West Virginia University, places a positron emission tomography (PET) helmet-like mobile scanner—designed for studies of human interaction, movement disorders, and more—on the subject’s head allowing research subjects to stand and make movements as the device scans. This Ambulatory Microdose Positron Emission Tomography (AMPET) scanner could launch new psychological and clinical studies on how the brain functions when affected by diseases from epilepsy to addiction, and during ordinary and dysfunctional social interactions.Full Story

    A researcher holds a prototype of a biosensor designed to detect active levels of a medicine in the bloodstream, as part of a system to personalize drug dosing. The new technology has three basic components: a real-time biosensor to continuously monitor drug levels in the bloodstream, a control system to calculate the right dose and a programmable pump that delivers just enough medicine to maintain a desired dose.Full Story

    Researchers from UCLA and the University of Connecticut have designed a new bio-friendly energy storage supercapacitor for cardiac pacemakers and other implantable medical devices eliminating the need for batteries. The supercapacitor charges using electrolytes from biological fluids like blood serum and urine, and it would work with another device called an energy harvester, which converts heat and motion from the human body into electricity—in much the same way that self-winding watches are powered by the wearer’s body movements. That electricity is then captured by the supercapacitor for use by the pacemaker or other implantable device.Full Story
