A mouse study has demonstrated that glioblastoma could be treated directly using an ultrasound technique that delivers a potent treatment across the blood–brain barrier into the tumor.
Home technology including artificial intelligence, robotics and sleep monitoring may become standard in the homes of people living with dementia, researchers indicate.
A groundbreaking treatment that delivers a drug directly to the brain may offer hope to restore damaged brain cells in Parkinson’s disease.
Researchers have developed an application that could detect when an opioid overdose has taken place; potentially leading to a greater number of individuals receiving medical help in this situation.
Researchers have demonstrated that a tetraplegic patient can learn to adapt neural activity to maintain control of a brain-machine interface in the face of technical challenges.

Dementia-on-a-chip: Trevor Bushell and Michele Zagnoni on microfluidics, collaboration and the future of dementia research
The use of on-a-chip technologies has seen enormous growth across the biomedical sciences in recent years, but how can this approach be harnessed to further understand dementia and develop new therapies?
Study also finds that information predictive of major depressive disorder is distributed across brain networks, rather than being highly localized.
In this editorial, the authors discuss how emerging technologies could provide an answer to remaining questions in concussion, including identification and return-to-play protocol standards.
