Researchers Say Their 'Brain Glue' Could Someday Help People With Severe Brain Injuries

Scientists say they’re one step closer to showing that their experimental hydrogel technology—more plainly known as “brain glue”—can help people with traumatic brain injuries. In a recent study, they found that their brain glue helped prevent long-term damage and tissue loss in the injured brains of rats, while also…Read more...

Researchers collaborate in development of brain-friendly interfaces

Recent research published in the journal Microsystems & Nanoengineering could eventually change the way people living with prosthetics and spinal cord injury lead their lives. Instead of using neural prosthetic devices -- which suffer from immune-system rejection and are believed to fail due to a material and mechanical mismatch -- a multi-institutional team, including Lohitash Karumbaiah of the University of Georgia, has developed a brain-friendly extracellular matrix environment of neuronal ce...
