Wirelessly rechargeable soft brain implant controls brain cells​

Researchers have invented a smartphone-controlled soft brain implant that can be recharged wirelessly from outside the body. Scientists believe this technology can help uncover and treat psychiatric disorders and neurodegenerative diseases such as addiction, depression, and Parkinson’s

New technique creates organ-on-a-chip in a short time and at a low cost

A streamlined approach is proposed for the fabrication of organ‐on‐a‐chip devices with incorporated microactuators, by using an adaptation of xurography. This method can generate multilayered, membrane‐integrated biochips in a matter of hours, using low‐cost benchtop equipment
