Multi-organ "Human-on-a-Chip" Enables Long-term Toxicology Testing

Human-on-a-chip systems aim to reproduce physiologic aspects of the human body by merging human tissue with engineered BioMEMs systems to emulate clinical parameters. This technology opens a broad spectrum of possibilities to better predict the human outcome without having to rely on animal experimentation. Image credit: Hesperos Inc.

Innovative Technique Measures Pressure in the Skull Using the Brain's Natural Resonance Frequency

News

Currently, the only way to measure pressure inside the skull, formally called intracranial pressure (ICP), is by using invasive techniques that insert a catheter or sensor. Researchers have been hunting for better ways of measuring ICP. The latest proposed solution can predict ICP by monitoring resonance frequencies within the brain.
