Brain waves – or, oscillatory brain activity – are thought to play an important role in how different areas of the brain communicate. They’re also altered in many diseases.
The inner-workings of the neural circuitry that underlies brain function is better understood today thanks to recent technological advances developing new tools that increasingly peel back the mysteries of the three pounds of gray tissue between our ears.
Paul Benkeser, professor and senior associate chair in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, has been elected to the 2019 Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) Class of Fellows.
The Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience at the Georgia Institute of Technology has expanded its roster of world class scientists and engineers with the addition of 12 new faculty researchers from three different universities: the Georgia Institute of Technology, Emory University, an
Tiny silica bottles filled with medicine and a special temperature-sensitive material could be used for drug delivery to kill malignant cells only in certain parts of the body, according to a study published recently by researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
By the time he was 15 years old, Connor McMahon had spent at least a third of his life receiving chemotherapy to fight the cancer that would not leave him alone.

For as long as she can remember, Karmella Ann Haynes has been intrigued in the sights and sounds of the real world, curious about how the universe works.
Anna Romanov and Julia Woodall, undergraduate students in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, will probably never leave the Earth’s orbit.
Women continue to be disproportionally affected by HIV around the world, but particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, where three in four new HIV infections are among young girls. For women seeking care in developing countries, preventing and managing HIV is an expensive proposition.
Paralyzed people moving their limbs or operating prosthetic devices by having machines decipher the electrical impulses in their nervous systems: it’s an appealing vision, and one that is getting closer. Right now, when a computer “reads” someone’s brain, the interface between brain and machine d
When all of her classmates graduated from their Arts magnet high school in Baltimore and were moving on to study art on college campuses across the country, multi-talented Emily Madsen decided to do things a bit differently.
At the ISTH 2019 Congress in Melbourne, Australia, thousands of the world’s leading experts on thrombosis, hemostasis and vascular biology come together to present the most recent advances, exchange the latest science and discuss the newest clinical applications designed to improve patient care.
The Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University have launched a training grant program in Computational Neural Engineering (CNE) with support from the National Institutes of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Robots aren’t yet household fixtures, but Georgia Tech researchers have already come up with a way domestic bots might recognize materials around the home.
