Scientists Use 26,000 Photos To Create 281-Gigapixel Embryo Image

Scientists Use 26,000 Photos To Create 281-Gigapixel Embryo Image

Electron microscopy has long been used as a technique to capture the details of cellular structures at a very micro level. However, until now, the technique was used only to capture a small part of an organism. Now, however, researchers have been able to apply the technique to capture ultra-high-resolution image of the entire zebrafish embryo.

New Medical Device Lets You Write Through Eye Movements

New Medical Device Lets You Write Through Eye Movements

For long, researchers have sought to find ways to track eye movements and use that as signals to control different devices. Until now, this was impossible because eye movements make a lot of involuntary as well as voluntary movements. And it’s quite hard to distinguish between the two. However, now Dr Jean Lorenceau at Universite Pierre et Marie Curie-Paris has been able to overcome this critical problem. He has been able to devise a medical device which can accurately read voluntary eye movements and then translate them into words.
