Researchers create simulator to train embryologists

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (Oct. 18, 2011) — The Miguel Hernández University (MHU) of Elche and the Reproduction Unit of the Vistahermosa Clinic of Alicante (Spain) have presented a unique system that simulates the environment of an embryology laboratory and avoids the waste of valuable human biological material and breakages of medical equipment.

The Embryologist Station Training (TEST) consists of a console and a software that allow beginners to train the...

Practical play: Interactive video games appear valuable for ICU patients

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (Oct. 4, 2011) — Interactive video games, already known to improve motor function in recovering stroke patients, appear to safely enhance physical therapy for patients in intensive care units (ICU), new research from Johns Hopkins suggests.

In a report published online in the Journal of Critical Care, researchers studied the safety and feasibility of using video games to complement regular physical therapy in the ICU.

"Patients...

Put down that game controller: Researcher suggests video games may not boost cognition

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (Sep. 15, 2011) — Wouldn't it be nice if all those hours kids spent glued to their PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 or Nintendo DS video games actually resulted in something tangible? Better grades, perhaps? Improved concentration? Superior driving skills?

Over the past decade, many studies and news media reports have suggested that action video games such as Medal of Honor or Unreal Tournament improve a variety of perceptual and cognitive...

Virtual reality may help adults recover from stroke

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (Sep. 6, 2011) — Early results suggest that using virtual reality (VR) human-computer interfaces might help adult stroke patients regain arm function and improve their ability to perform standard tasks, when compared to patients who don't use VR. The findings are reported in a new review published in The Cochrane Library.

Virtual reality interfaces allow people to become immersed in a computer-generated environment. Most people...

Innovation is step toward digital graphene transistors

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (Sep. 6, 2011) — Researchers are making progress in creating digital transistors using a material called graphene, potentially sidestepping an obstacle thought to dramatically limit the material's use in computers and consumer electronics.

Graphene is a one-atom-thick layer of carbon that conducts electricity with little resistance or heat generation. After its discovery in 2004 -- which earned a Nobel Prize in physics -- it was...
