Engineering researchers have designed ultra-flexible, nanoelectronic thread brain probes that can achieve more reliable long-term neural recording than existing probes and don't elicit scar formation when implanted.
Plants are capable of producing powerful movement that is initiated at the molecular level. Researchers now demonstrate that these biological strategies can be re-engineered by interfacing molecular switches with man-made materials.
Researchers have developed a new type of nanosensor that can detect single molecules. The nanosensor, comprising a combination of two different materials, has been used to identify the different building blocks in DNA.
