Geraldine Hamilton: Body parts on a chip

It's relatively easy to imagine a new medicine, a better cure for some disease. The hard part, though, is testing it, and that can delay promising new cures for years. In this well-explained talk, Geraldine Hamilton shows how her lab creates organs and body parts on a chip, simple structures with all the pieces essential to testing new medications -- even custom cures for one specific person.

We think this is an aweeome video, Geraldine Hamilton is totally awesome she is really geting at the heart of issues in the big pharma and healthcare field and addressing the issues intelligently, nothing but right on the lady, well worth every minute of this short video. Check it out it also has play in the semiconductor realm as well, (also why we like this too)

A world without limits

New technologies are blurring the boundaries between the real and the virtual world. The brain can control a machine, and even perceive it as its own body. Can that improve our lives?

Playing Music as a Child Leads to Better Listening as an Adult

Playing Music as a Child Leads to Better Listening as an Adult | cool stuff from research | Scoop.it
A new study indicates that musical instruction for just a few years during childhood can have long-lasting benefits...

This post looks at a study published in the Journal of Neuroscience that finds that "just one to five years of experience playing music as a child was associated with an improved cognitive ability in processing complex sounds as a young adult." 

This study supports the need for public education to provide music education, "[Along with] earlier research, we infer that a few years of music lessons also confer advantages in how one perceives and attends to sounds in everyday communication situations, such as noisy restaurants." For more information click through to the article.
