    Researchers have identified a non-verbal, neural marker of autism. This marker shows that individuals with autism are slower to dampen neural activity in response to visual signals in the brain. This first-of-its kind marker was found to be independent of intelligence and offers an objective way to potentially diagnose autism in the future.

  • Blinking eye-on-a-chip used for disease modeling and drug testing
    on August 5, 2019 at 5:40 pm

    The latest iteration of an eye-on-a-chip has a mechanical eyelid to simulate blinking and was used to test an experimental drug for dry eye disease. By incorporating human cells into an engineered scaffolding, the eye-on-a-chip has many of the benefits of testing on living subjects, while minimizing risks and ethical concerns.
