Stanford and Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) engineers have created a new way for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) to take photographs deep below the surface of the ocean.
A Stanford research group found that brain scans can reveal neural differences in children of varied reading abilities by measuring the rate of development in certain brain regions.
In an interview with The New York Times, Contag called the process, which uses new technology to construct three-dimensional images hundreds of cells deep, “point of care pathology.”
New wireless technology developed by Stanford researchers could eliminate the need for batteries in implantable medical devices.
