USA man implanted "smart" prosthetic hands

USA man implanted American scientists were able to successfully implant the prosthetic hands of the person who manages it by using thoughts. Two years ago, 56-year-old Jesse Sullivan lost both hands on his shoulders, when he touched them to the high-voltage power lines. Specialists of Chicago rehabilitation Institute implanted him in one normal shoulder prosthesis, for implantation another used one of the latest achievements of biomechanical technology. To do this, doctors transplanted a portion of the nerve cells of the shoulder of the patient in the muscles of the chest and attached to him electrodes, which perceive the impulses of nerves formed by the thought of a man, and transmit them to the system controlling movement of the prosthesis. The human brain is quite capable of adapting to such changes. Previously electrodes was used directly in the brain or even placed on a special panel, however, the new method gives better results.

Japanese scientists have learned to deal with baldness

Japanese scientists have learned to deal with baldnessJapanese scientists have learned to deal with baldness A major breakthrough was achieved by Japanese scientists in the fight against baldness. Researchers from Hiroshima University report that they have found a way to "extend the life of hair", or rather cells, of which they are composed. The growth of the hair lasts as long as these cells retain the ability to divide. However, with age, this function is gradually weakened, and some stops at all, and that leads to baldness. The programmed cell death, and the role of molecular chronometer" counting down the time of their life, does the tail part of the chromosomes - the telomeres. Than they are shorter, the closer genetic cell death and wider thinned plot on top. Читать полностью -->
