Measuring Brain’s Electrical Activity Using Fluorescent Sensor

Measuring Brain's Electrical Activity

Researchers have come up with a new method to measure brain’s electrical activity, without electrodes. They built Archon1, a light-sensitive protein, that ejects a fluorescent signal after it’s delivered into a brain cell.  Neurons communicate with each other through electrical events known as “action potentials” and chemical neurotransmitters. They enable the brain to harmonize thoughts, sensation, emotions ...

Artificial Eye Built With Adaptive Metalens and Supporting Muscle

The metalens can focus, perform image shift and control aberrations caused by astigmatisms, all at the same time.  The lens and muscle together have a total thickness of 30 microns. The metalens’ shape is controlled by an electric signal to form the necessary optical wavefronts.  Researchers at Harvard University have built an adaptive metalens that ...
