Monteris wins FDA nod for NeuroBlate Optic laser probe
Monteris Medical said today it won FDA clearance for the NeuroBlate Optic laser probe designed for its minimally invasive magnetic resonance imaging-guided NeuroBlate robotic laser thermotherapy system, which is intended for use in treating brain tumors and epileptic foci. The Plymouth, Minn.-based company said that the newly cleared laser probe replaces previous generation’s metal thermocouple inside the laser probe with a non-metallic fiber optic temperature sensor to eliminate the risk of unintended probe heating. The shift to non-metallic patient contacting components means that MR-scan restrictions, which w...

Hyperfine interaction of individual atoms on a surface
Taking advantage of nuclear spins for electronic structure analysis, magnetic resonance imaging, and quantum devices hinges on knowledge and control of the surrounding atomic-scale environment. We measured and manipulated the hyperfine interaction of individual iron and titanium atoms placed on a magnesium oxide surface by using spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy in combination with single-atom electron spin resonance. Using atom manipulation to move single atoms, we found that the hyperfine interaction strongly depended on the binding configuration of the atom. We could extract atom- and position-dependent infor...

Brains of people with schizophrenia are less reactive to social rewards like smiling faces, study shows
FINDINGSIn imaging studies, UCLA researchers found that the brains of people with schizophrenia are less sensitive to social rewards, such as the positive feelings that can come from social interactions with people, than they are to so-called nonsocial rewards, such as money or objects.BACKGROUNDPeople generally find social stimulation rewarding, which in turn motivates them to seek more social interactions. Conversely, in people with schizophrenia, abnormalities in how the brain processes social rewards likely contribute  to human interaction problems. One of the hallmarks of schizophrenia is the impairment of social...
