Researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine have found that controlling high blood pressure may not be enough to prevent associated cognitive declines. The findings suggest new approaches to prevent damage to brain cells.
Five people who had life-altering, seemingly irreversible cognitive deficits following moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries showed substantial improvements in their cognition and quality of life after receiving an experimental form of deep brain stimulation in a phase 1 clinical trial.
Researchers created a new technique to treat Type 1 diabetes: implanting a device inside a pocket under the skin that can secrete insulin while avoiding the immunosuppression that typically stymies management of the disease.
Researchers have demonstrated the use of artificial-intelligence-selected natural images and AI-generated synthetic images as neuroscientific tools for probing the visual processing areas of the brain.
"Change-making: Designing Healthy and Hospitable Environments" (DEA 1112), offered this Winter Session online, explores how design innovations can have a positive impact on the everyday life of people in hospitality, health care and senior housing areas. The course also helps students explore possible careers.
