The next project comes from the Science Museum in UK and it is an attempt to rebuild one robot of the beginning of the century. I think it will be a good addition to the museum it happens and a very nice way to tell the museum what kind of things matters to the people.
A group of scientist consider ageing as a disease and wants to treat it. The key solution? We don’t know yet, but what we know for sure is that regeneration will be an important part of the solution. Why some animals regenerate better than others? Why it is easier for them to recover completely from injuries, from amputated limbs… Why there is few examples among mammals? Wouldn’t be nice to come back from surgery without scars or permanent damage to internal organs? Solving these questions and others is the aim of the next project which is focused on one type of mammal that has the ability of regenerate. By backing this project you will contribute to expand your own life spam, isn’t it a good perspective to live more?
I rarely suggest funding movies, I only do it when it is something very geek to made money out of it but it still deserves to be done. In this case, it is important that we constantly encourage people to know more about science. Because science is not something some people do, it is an approach to understand and behave with the world, and everybody can gain by using the scientific approach in their daily life. Does this product really does what it says? How do I know it is true? Ask questions, investigate, learn and then improve your life.
The next project aims to make people more concious about products that advertise as doing something they really don’t do. Science moms!
The project this week aims to identify neurons that create rhythmic signals. Those signals can be used to breathe for instance, but also for walking or timing movement.
This week we highlight another biology project. This time to sample tissue from the eye. Because it is a non invasive technique, it is important to develop it not inly by its own value but also for the possible extension to other problems.
The experiment we highlight this week wants to help people with brain injuries. The main reason for doing so is because they will use EEG for monitoring and the more people using this technique, the better it will become. So, if you want this technology to develop, fund projects like this.
The next project aims to fund the training of scientist to learn how to use light to affect neuron cells. Although this is not a research project by itself, training scientists always an improvement and in this case it will help the overall community of brain researchers.
