A 100-Year Debate About the Eardrum Comes to an End

A 100-Year Debate About the Eardrum Comes to an End | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Evolutionary biologists have long wondered why the eardrum—the membrane that relays sound waves to the inner ear—looks in humans and other mammals remarkably like the one in reptiles and birds. Did the membrane and therefore the ability to hear in these groups evolve from a common ancestor? Or did the auditory systems evolve independently to perform the same function, a phenomenon called convergent evolution? A recent set of experiments performed at the University of Tokyo and the RIKEN Evolutionary Morphology Laboratory in Japan resolves the issue.


When the scientists genetically inhibited lower jaw development in both fetal mice and chickens, the mice formed neither eardrums nor ear canals. In contrast, the birds grew two upper jaws, from which two sets of eardrums and ear canals sprouted. The results, published in Nature Communications, confirm that the middle ear grows out of the lower jaw in mammals but emerges from the upper jaw in birds—all supporting the hypothesis that the similar anatomy evolved independently in mammals and in reptiles and birds. (Scientific American is part of Springer Nature.) Fossils of auditory bones had supported this conclusion as well, but eardrums do not fossilize and so could not be examined directly.

Scientists have managed to build a fully functional neuron by using organic bioelectronics

Scientists have managed to build a fully functional neuron by using organic bioelectronics | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Scientists at Karolinska Institutet have managed to build a fully functional neuron by using organic bioelectronics. This artificial neuron contain no ‘living’ parts, but is capable of mimicking the function of a human nerve cell and communicate in the same way as our own neurons do.


Neurons are isolated from each other and communicate with the help of chemical signals, commonly called neurotransmitters or signal substances. Inside a neuron, these chemical signals are converted to an electrical action potential, which travels along the axon of  the neuron until it reaches the end. Here at the synapse, the electrical signal is converted to the release of chemical signals, which via diffusion can relay the signal to the next nerve cell.


To date, the primary technique for neuronal stimulation in human cells is based on electrical stimulation. However, scientists at the Swedish Medical Nanoscience Centre (SMNC) at Karolinska Institutet's Department of Neuroscience in collaboration with collegues at Linköping University, have now created an organic bioelectronic device that is capable of receiving chemical signals, which it can then relay to human cells.


“Our artificial neuron is made of conductive polymers and it functions like a human neuron”, says lead investigator Agneta Richter-Dahlfors, professor of cellular microbiology. “The sensing component of the artificial neuron senses a change in chemical signals in one dish, and translates this into an electrical signal. This electrical signal is next translated into the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in a second dish, whose effect on living human cells can be monitored.“

The FDA doesn’t want to regulate wearables, and device makers want to keep it that way

The Food and Drug Administration doesn't want to take away your Fitbit.That was the philosophy the FDA broadcast earlier this year when it unveiled its "draft guidance" for low-risk medical devices, a non-binding proposal that described the agency's thinking on regulation of devices like wearable fitness trackers. The guidance effectively suggests the agency won't vigorously regulate devices as long as they're not harmful and generally encourage healthy habits. Many devices with less-than-stellar track records for accuracy — such as calorie counters — would likely not be covered under the guidance. "Basically [we are] being transparent in where the FDA is focusing their enforcement efforts," says Bakul Patel, associate director for digital health at the FDA.

Richard Platt's curator insight, June 25, 1:27 PM

The FDA's draft guidance, "General Wellness: Policy for Low Risk Devices," describes which devices the agency believes it should focus on regulating. That includes "general wellness" products, which are described in two ways. First, the products that either have "an intended use that relates to maintaining or encouraging a general state of health or a healthy activity," such as a device that helps "log, track, or trend exercise activity." The devices may also have "an intended use claim that associates the role of healthy lifestyle with helping to reduce the risk or impact of certain chronic diseases or conditions" when the science clearly shows a healthy lifestyle can have an impact. (The FDA already considers something a "medical device" if it's used to diagnose or treat a disease.) "Low risk" products, according to the guidance, are non-invasive and generally do not "pose a risk to a user’s safety if device controls are not applied."
