Developing a Medtech Product? Consider These 4 Essentials
Years ago, when Darren Saravis invented the SKB guitar effects pedalboard, he was met with quick success. The experience, however, prompted Saravis to envision a different approach to product development, one that combines or integrates multiple disciplines. “When I was designing the pedalboard, I didn’t see a lot of combined approaches,” he told MD+DI. His experience prompted the idea of a multidisciplinary product development firm. “There was an opportunity in the market to offer a process that took a product from start to finish. A holistic view was necessary to achieve this. We needed to un...

Veterans who learn Transcendental Meditation find relief from PTSD, new study shows
(Maharishi University of Management) A study published in Military Medicine showed that after 30 days of practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique, 80 percent of the 46 veterans and active-duty personnel no longer had PTSD. All participants had been clinically diagnosed with PTSD using a standard assessment. By comparison, standard treatments for PTSD--prolonged exposure therapy, cognitive processing therapy, and medication--are only partially successful: approximately two-thirds of patients receiving cognitive processing therapy or prolonged exposure still have PTSD after treatment.

10 Tips for a New Year and a New You

What may be a far more realistic ambition, though, is to stick with overarching goals that allow room for incremental improvement — and a feeling of accomplishment.

Social place-cells in the bat hippocampus
Social animals have to know the spatial positions of conspecifics. However, it is unknown how the position of others is represented in the brain. We designed a spatial observational-learning task, in which an observer bat mimicked a demonstrator bat while we recorded hippocampal dorsal-CA1 neurons from the observer bat. A neuronal subpopulation represented the position of the other bat, in allocentric coordinates. About half of these "social place-cells" represented also the observer’s own position—that is, were place cells. The representation of the demonstrator bat did not reflect self-movement or t...
