Scientists can tell who we are thinking about by scanning the brain

Scientists have used brain scans to decode imagery directly from the brain.

Brain researchers can tell whom a person is thinking about by scanning the human brain.  For the first time they have been able to identify what people are imagining from imaging technologies.

A New Way To Detect Cancer Early

A New Way To Detect Cancer Early 

 

A prototype device employs the same magnetic phenomenon used to write data to computer hard drives.

A new system for detecting cancer proteins uses the same magnetic phenomenon that lets computer hard drives read and write data. The Stanford University researchers developing the system hope that it will detect cancer in its earlier stages, when it’s easier to treat. MagArray, a startup in Sunnyvale, CA, will commercialize the technology.
