Stanford researchers track human stem cells transplanted into rat brain

...ts and mice, and found that the cells successfully navigate toward areas damaged by stroke. The research group placed miniscule particles of iron inside stem cells to act as cellular beacons detected by magnetic resonance imaging. With the ability to monitor where the human stem cells go in real time, resea...

E/Tablet technology may provide benefits to patients, researchers

...ported that the tablets were easy to read, easy to navigate and were a comfortable weight, and that responding to questions using the tablets was easy.

'Smart' mice teach scientists about learning process, brain disorders

...The engineered mice were more adept at learning to navigate a water maze and remembering that being in a certain box involves a mild shock. Equally important, Dr. Bibb said, when a situtation changed, such as the water maze being rearranged, the engineered mice were much faster to realize that things were dif...

Scientists equip bacteria with custom chemo-navigational system
