Rather than distinctly male or female, the human brain is much more like the heart, kidneys and lungs – basically the same no matter the sex of the body it’s in.
Sections in the brain called “senders” and “receivers” are responsible for directing neural traffic, and we are now a step closer to understanding how they work.
Automated decision making has been around in healthcare since the 1970s, and now radiology is the new frontline where AI is being deployed.
Researchers get their first glimpse into what happens in the brain when we consciously relinquish control over our actions and go with the flow.
A standard clinical MRI is not sensitive to the distributed and microscopic injuries in a concussed brain. But new discoveries are in the pipeline.
Leaders in private and public organizations should seek creative problem-solving skills to better innovate. Design thinking may be the answer.
Helium lifts balloons and makes our voices squeak. But its supply on Earth is finite and is critical for modern industrial processes and medical imaging in hospitals. How worried should we be?
With artificial intelligence, machines can now examine thousands of medical images for signs of disease. Will this technology replace doctors – or work side by side with them?
All parents should understand the symptoms of concussion, whether their child plays sports or not.
