Brain Research:Carbon nanotube fibers make superior links to brain ♦ Research into brain's ability to heal itself ♦ Milk could be good for your brain + more

Research into brain's ability to heal itself offers hope for novel treatment of traumatic brain injury Innovative angles of attack in research that focus on how the human brain protects and repairs itself will help develop treatments for one of the most common, costly, deadly and scientifically frustrating medical conditions worldwide: traumatic brain injury.

Milk could be good for your brain  A correlation between milk consumption and the levels of a naturally-occurring antioxidant called glutathione in the brain has been discovered in older, healthy adults Continue Reading
Brain tumor cells decimated by mitochondrial 'smart bomb'  An experimental drug that attacks brain tumor tissue by crippling the cells' energy source called the mitochondria has passed early tests in animal models and human tissue cultures, say scientists.Continue Reading
Carbon nanotube fibers make superior links to brain  Carbon nanotube fibers may provide the best way to communicate directly with the brain. The research could enable new strategies for treating neurological disorders like Parkinson's Continue Reading

Nanorobotic agents open the blood-brain barrier, offering hope for new brain treatments Magnetic nanoparticles can open the blood-brain barrier and deliver molecules directly to the brain. This barrier runs inside almost all vessels in the brain and protects it from elements circulating in the blood that may be toxic.The research is important as currently 98% of therapeutic molecules are also unable to cross the blood-brain barrier.
