Researchers Use 3D Printing and Basic Electronic Components to Make Neuroscience More Accessible

While I was worse in math, science was also not one of my strong suits in school. So anything that makes it easier for students to better understand these complex subjects is a good idea, in my humble opinion. Tom Baden, a professor of neuroscience at the University of Sussex, has been collaborating with his... Read More »

3D Printed Model of Your Brain

via Engadget The new technology, developed by Keating and a team at Harvard’s Wyss Institute, relies on printing with dithered bitmaps, a digital file format where each pixel of a grayscale image is converted into a series of black and white pixels, and the density of the black pixels is what defines the different shades...

Aether Announces New Developments for Its AI-Powered 3D Medical Imaging Software

A little over a month ago, 3D bioprinting startup Aether, based in San Francisco with a new University of California location at Johnson & Johnson Innovation, released its latest announcement. The startup, already well-known for its Aether 1 3D bioprinter, has entered the world of medical imaging software, and developed the Automatic Segmentation and Reconstruction (ASAR)... Read More »

Researchers Use 3D Mapping to Measure Growth and Folding Patterns in Pre-Term Babies’ Brains

3D printing has been used often in pediatric surgeries, but it’s also been put to work in difficult medical cases where a baby hasn’t even been born yet. A collaborative research team based at Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) has tested a new method, using 3D technologies, that could be used to make new diagnostic... Read More »

3D bioprinting deemed an important tool for understanding brain disease

3D bioprinting could be the exact tool that researchers need to discover the cause of Alzheimer’s disease and strokes. Though animal models exist for the purpose of neurovascular research, a technical review written by a team at the University of Manchester in the UK makes the case for human cell models that can be studied...
