Chair et Métal - L'Humanité augmentée
L’environnement informatique et technologique détermine aujourd’hui notre vie tout autant que le fait notre code génétique. Nous abordons une ère où s’enchevêtreront la technologie et l’être vivant, où le corps existera en partie à l’extérieur du monde biologique et dépendra de moins en moins de l’écosystème organique.

Controlling individual neurons with your brain

Controlling individual neurons with your brain | Chair et Métal - L'Humanité augmentée | Scoop.it
(Medical Xpress)—In many ways humans are universal machines. We can generate an answer to any question asked of us or move our body into any configuration our joints permit. We can do this near-instantaneously, and with semi-unconscious ease. While it is accepted that our neurons control these functions, ...

Scientists Try To Build Heart With 3-D Printer

Scientists Try To Build Heart With 3-D Printer | Chair et Métal - L'Humanité augmentée | Scoop.it
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- It may sound far-fetched, but scientists are attempting to build a human heart with a 3-D printer.Ultimately, the goal is to create a new heart for a patient with their own cells that could be transplanted. It is an ambitious project to first, make a heart and then get it to work in a patient, and it could be years — perhaps decades — before a 3-D printed heart would ever be put in a person.The technology, though, is not all that futuristic: Researchers have already used 3-D printers to make splints, valves and even a human ear.

Reuters TV | Brain clots meet their match with robot needle

April 10 - Surgeons may soon have a new tool for treating patients with dangerous blood clots in the brain - a robotic needle that will suck the clot free without harming healthy tissue around it. As Ben Gruber reports, the robot's developers are taking a novel approach to replicating the human brain for their experiments.

Encore très peu expérimentée, la reconstruction tissulaire à partir de cellules de patients semble faire ses preuves. Deux études, l'une Suisse et l'autre Américano-mexicaine, publiée simultanément dans la revue The Lancet montrent qu'elle permet avec succès de reconstruire de véritables organes humains chez des patients atteints de graves maladies. La technique a notamment été expérimentée à Bâle, sur cinq patients atteints d'un cancer de la peau au niveau du nez.
