What If a Machine Could Read Your Brain Signals for Pain?
At some point or another most of us have been asked to rate our pain on a scale of zero to 10 during a visit to the doctor or hospital. But what if a patient is unconscious or noncommunicative and unable to rate their own pain? What if there was a piece of technology capable of communicating a patient’s pain level for them by analyzing brain activity? Researchers at MIT and elsewhere have developed just such a system. The portable device leverages an emerging neuroimaging technique called functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) in which sensors placed around the head measure oxygenated hemoglobin co...

Scalable submicrometer additive manufacturing
High-throughput fabrication techniques for generating arbitrarily complex three-dimensional structures with nanoscale features are desirable across a broad range of applications. Two-photon lithography (TPL)–based submicrometer additive manufacturing is a promising candidate to fill this gap. However, the serial point-by-point writing scheme of TPL is too slow for many applications. Attempts at parallelization either do not have submicrometer resolution or cannot pattern complex structures. We overcome these difficulties by spatially and temporally focusing an ultrafast laser to implement a projection-based layer-by-...

Statement on Removal of Web Page on Human Genome Editing
We recently launched a new website intended to highlight the science underlying questions that our research shows Americans have about current issues. We are concerned that content on a page about human genome editing, including a video, left the misimpression that the use of genome editing for the“enhancement” of human traits is permissible or taken lightly. As that was not our intent, we are deleting the page and video (we deleted related social media posts earlier). We apologize for any concern or confusion we caused. Our 2017 report on the science, ethics, and governance of human genome editing recommended ...

10 Tips for Gauging the Quality of an Inpatient Rehab Program, from an Expert in the Field
When you’re suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction and/or another serious mental health condition, quality inpatient treatment is often critical to recovery. But finding quality inpatient treatment isn’t always easy in an industry that has at times been prone to scams. A case in point: a recent story on NPR described how some addiction treatment clinics are claiming that nutritional IV infusions (or “NAD infusions”) can cure cravings and addiction. The news is the latest in a string of reports in recent years revealing how some rehab facilities have preyed on and profited from individuals’ and families’ des...
