This Ig Nobel-winning research is shedding light on how ultrasound waves could be used to non-invasively control nerve impulses (and therefore ‘thoughts’) in our brains.
New treatment can break down toxic substances into relatively harmless elements.
Sound waves are displayed as an oscillating glow light.
Some treatments for neurodegenerative diseases involve inserting wires into the brain and zapping certain brain cells with electricity. But what if you could do the same thing using sound waves?
Do you think you could make an echo at Echo Point in Katoomba?
