Work begins on Athena, a $19 million project that seeks to create artificial organs that work in concert inside a human-like test dummy that could reduce reliance on animal testing.
Researchers turn to an unusual robot for new method of treating blood clots in the brain.
Researchers at Vanderbilt University have created a "thinking cap" that electrically stimulates the brain to increase its ability to learn from mistakes.
It's been tested on only a handful of kids, but using MRI with a diagnostic dye to look for cancer may work just as well as using PET and CT scans.
Scientists at Georgia Tech say a new technique for tagging the genome and studying the RNA of a virus could help them discover better antiviral drugs and perhaps even more effective vaccines.
New images from NASA's Hubble telescope reveal that the Ring Nebula is more complex than we knew. It's not a bagel, but a jelly doughnut.
The aviation industry started in Dayton, Ohio, and today, the city cherishes that history. CNET's Daniel Terdiman visited as part of Road Trip 2013.
Lower-limb prosthetic, in development at Vanderbilt for seven years, uses computer, sensor, electric motor, and battery tech to power knee and ankle joints that operate in unison.
Researchers are looking to push robotic exoskeletons into the realm of thought control, eliminating the need for hand controls and reaching those unable to use their upper bodies.
With the first thought-controlled bionic leg pioneered in Chicago, the next steps for smart prosthetics are refining them for widespread use and tackling a huge hurdle: sensory feedback.
