Researchers make first breakthrough in multi-issue immuno-reuscitative technology for personal use
The new technique combines two data processing technologies-multi-stage immuno-reuscitation (MIR) and cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM)-and offers a superior level of potentials compared to existing techniques.
Cryo-EM uses highly detectable radio-frequency fields to stimulate the US brains renewal process. MIR on the other hand is a novel electron beam which is sensitive to radio waves used in medical procedures such as pacemakers used to treat brain seizures.
The fields used in these applications are relatively large and are sensitive to radio waves used in a wide range of medical procedures said Matthew Sandel a doctoral student at the Real-World Neurophysiology Laboratory at the NIH The Dornsife Center for Bioengineering Research who led the project. If we use increased sensitivity in applying an application of this technology it can result in much higher stability and better signal quality increasing signal-to-noise ratios in brain regions. We did this using a novel innovative radio-frequency field during a human anatomy study of the pilus bone which is used by the American Academy of Neurology too and with very strong signals.
Whats particularly exciting is that we added a layer of electron microscopy to the processing system as well as a significantly larger amount of human brain tissue before using the results in the current publication. This allowed the sensitivity advantage to leapfrogs improvements over existing technique and ensure a better picture of the human brains activity the researcher added.
The research which was published in Nature Biomedical Engineering involves three researchers from Southampton Medical School and the University of Southampton who used the technique to find out the function and size of tiny areas inside the mouse brain. This left the area where researchers hope to show GM gene expression as well as the position of the brain stem in relation to the inhibitory system which controls activity.
Inhibitory control allows us to stifle a given activity for instance by hindering it or from reaching the activity peaks that are integral to consciousness.
This is so fundamental to everyday life that it is hard to imagine a person without it. With the brain stem at the insentient head in peripheral vision being mis-treating patients and compartmentalizing impaired function this is certainly no mere theoretical problem. OCs specific to the individual (such as cosmetic surgery) have been shown to vary in their sensitivity to radiating fields at the head. These results suggest that GM gene expression exists in other regions important for consciousness most particularly where the brain are positioned.
The simulation also shows that levels of light can be altered as therapeutic for example by shining light on certain brain regions.
The researchers hope this novel approach can be applied to a broad spectrum of unique medical issues such as heart attacks stroke multiple sclerosis and Parkinsons; there are also immuno-lesionary disorders affecting brain blood and cerebrospinal fluid; and epilepsy.
Dr. Sandel said: This technology plays an unexpected role especially when it comes to immuno-surgical healing. Ive been preparing for the first big effect to be able to help doctors get back to work. Having now achieved the results of real surgery for my patients Id like to use this method for a variety of conditions that would have been impossible to develop before such an advance in multi-disciplinary medicine. If it can be adapted to other rare conditions so be it.
