Researchers use 7T MR to create highest resolution brain scan ever – DOTmed HealthCare Business News

Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital have completed the highest resolution MR scan of an entire human brain to date, producing images 1,000 times more detailed than those of a standard clinical MR system.

The 100 micron resolution scan, acquired on a 7-Tesla system, is expected to provide greater insights into the structure of the brain and connections between different parts, while offering a greater understanding of the biology of neurological disorders such as traumatic brain injury and Alzheimers disease. The teams hope to eventually use the approach to form ultra-high resolution imaging techniques for use in living subjects.

We envision a future in which ex vivo MR and optical images at micron-scale resolution are precisely co-registered to histopathological data and in vivo MR data, Brian L. Edlow, first author of the paper, associate director of the MGH Center for Neurotechnology and Neurorecovery (CNTR), and director of the Laboratory for NeuroImaging of Coma and Consciousness (NICC), said in a statement. This fully integrated analysis pipeline will open up a new world of opportunities to investigate the pathophysiological basis of neurological disorders, and ultimately, will usher in a new era of pharmacologic, electrophysiologic, and neuromodulatory therapies.

The group released the actual scan of the donated brain in June, along with underlying data that points to the potential for additional applications with this type of scan information. One of the co-authors, for instance, integrated the data into a software platform called Lead DBS to enable neurologists and neurosurgeons to improve the therapeutic outcome of deep brain stimulation electrode placement for disorders such as Parkinsons disease and obsessive compulsive disorder. Another group, the Fiber Tractrography Lab at University of Pittsburgh, integrated the data with 3-D tractography data to show axonal pathways for mapping connectivity within the human brain. The information has also been integrated with a neuroanatomy atlas at Unochapec University in Brazil.

The project has been in the works for ten years, and involved the help of neuroscientists, neurologists, MR physicists, engineers, computer scientists and anatomists. It also required the construction of 32 custom radiofrequency coils to reach the maximum resolution that was possible. All were positioned securely around the brain in a way that prevented them from interfering with one another.

This unique dataset has a broad range of investigational, educational and clinical applications that will advance understanding of human brain anatomy in health and disease, said Edlow.

The findings were published in the journal, Scientific Data.

MGH did not respond for comment.

Kalamazoo, Michigan, Oct. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stryker (NYSE:SYK) reported operating results for the third quarter of 2019:

Third Quarter Highlights

"We delivered another strong quarter of results, with organic sales growth of 8.6% and adjusted EPS growth of 13%," said Kevin A. Lobo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We expect this momentum to continue, which positions us well to deliver above the high end of our initial guidance range for both organic sales and adjusted EPS."

Sales Analysis

Consolidated net sales of $3.6 billion increased 10.6% in the quarter and 11.5% in constant currency. Organic net sales increased 8.6% in the quarter including 9.3% from increased unit volume partially offset by 0.7% from lower prices.

Orthopaedics net sales of $1.3 billion increased 7.8% in the quarter and 8.8% in constant currency. Organic net sales increased 8.8% in the quarter including 10.1% from increased unit volume partially offset by 1.3% from lower prices.

MedSurg net sales of $1.6 billion increased 9.2% in the quarter and 10.0% in constant currency. Organic net sales increased 8.8% in the quarter including 9.2% from increased unit volume partially offset by 0.4% from lower prices.

Neurotechnology and Spine net sales of $0.7 billion increased 19.4% in the quarter and 20.2% in constant currency. Organic net sales increased 7.6% in the quarter including 7.8% from increased unit volume partially offset by 0.2% from lower prices.

Earnings Analysis

Reported net earnings of $466 million decreased 21.0% in the quarter. Reported net earnings per diluted share of $1.23 decreased 20.6% in the quarter. Reported gross profit margin and reported operating income margin were 65.0% and 17.5% in the quarter. Adjusted gross profit margin(1) and adjusted operating income margin(1) were 65.7% and 25.4%, an improvement of 50 basis points in the quarter. Adjusted net earnings(1) of $725 million increased 12.8% in the quarter. Adjusted net earnings per diluted share(1) of $1.91 increased 13.0% in the quarter.

2019 Outlook

Based on our performance to date and anticipated strength in the remainder of the year, we now expect 2019 organic net sales growth to be toward the higher end of our previously guided range of 7.5% to 8.0% and expect adjusted net earnings per diluted share(2) to be in the range of $8.20 to $8.25. For the fourth quarter we expect adjusted net earnings per diluted share(2) to be in the range of $2.43 to $2.48. If foreign currency exchange rates hold near current levels, we expect net sales in the fourth quarter and full year will be negatively impacted by approximately 1.0%, and net earnings per diluted share will be negatively impacted by approximately $0.02 in the fourth quarter and $0.15 in the full year.

(1) A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted gross profit margin, adjusted operating income and adjusted operating income margin, adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per diluted share, to the most directly comparable GAAP measures: gross profit margin, operating income and operating income margin, net earnings and net earnings per diluted share, and other important information accompanies this press release.

(2) We are unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of our expected net earnings per diluted share to expected adjusted net earnings per diluted share as we are unable to predict with reasonable certainty and without unreasonable effort the impact and timing of restructuring-related and other charges, acquisition-related expenses and fair value adjustments to inventory and the outcome of certain regulatory, legal and tax matters.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION - RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

We supplement the reporting of our financial information determined under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) with certain non-GAAP financial measures, including: percentage sales growth; percentage sales growth in constant currency; percentage organic sales growth; adjusted gross profit; adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses; adjusted research, development and engineering expenses; adjusted operating income; adjusted effective income tax rate; adjusted net earnings; and adjusted net earnings per diluted share (Diluted EPS). We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful information to assist investors and shareholders in understanding our financial results and assessing our prospects for future performance. Management believes percentage sales growth in constant currency and the other adjusted measures described above are important indicators of our operations because they exclude items that may not be indicative of or are unrelated to our core operating results and provide a baseline for analyzing trends in our underlying businesses. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures for reviewing the operating results of reportable business segments and analyzing potential future business trends in connection with our budget process and bases certain management incentive compensation on these non-GAAP financial measures.

To measure percentage sales growth in constant currency, we remove the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates that affect the comparability and trend of sales. Percentage sales growth in constant currency is calculated by translating current and prior year results at the same foreign currency exchange rate. To measure percentage organic sales growth, we remove the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and acquisitions, which affect the comparability and trend of sales. Percentage organic sales growth is calculated by translating current year results at prior year average foreign currency exchange rates excluding the impact of acquisitions. To measure earnings performance on a consistent and comparable basis, we exclude certain items that affect the comparability of operating results and the trend of earnings.

Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names. These adjusted financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for reported sales growth, gross profit, selling, general and administrative expenses, research, development and engineering expenses, operating income, effective income tax rate, net earnings and net earnings per diluted share, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results and the reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures below, provide a more complete understanding of our business. We strongly encourage investors and shareholders to review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.

The following reconciles the non-GAAP financial measures discussed above with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. The weighted-average diluted shares outstanding used in the calculation of non-GAAP earnings per share are the same as those used in the calculation of reported earnings per share for the respective period.

The US military is trying to read minds – MIT Technology Review

In August, three graduate students at Carnegie Mellon University were crammed together in a small, windowless basement lab, using a jury-rigged 3D printer frame to zap a slice of mouse brain with electricity.

The brain fragment, cut from the hippocampus, looked like a piece of thinly sliced garlic. It rested on a platform near the center of the contraption. A narrow tube bathed the slice in a solution of salt, glucose, and amino acids. This kept it alive, after a fashion: neurons in the slice continued to fire, allowing the experimenters to gather data. An array of electrodes beneath the slice delivered the electric zaps, while a syringe-like metal probe measured how the neurons reacted. Bright LED lamps illuminated the dish. The setup, to use the lab members lingo, was kind of hacky.

A monitor beside the rig displayed stimulus and response: jolts of electricity from the electrodes were followed, milliseconds later, by neurons firing. Later, the researchers would place a material with the same electrical and optical properties as a human skull between the slice and the electrodes, to see if they could stimulate the mouse hippocampus through the simulated skull as well.

They were doing this because they want to be able to detect and manipulate signals in human brains without having to cut through the skull and touch delicate brain tissue. Their goal is to eventually develop accurate and sensitive brain-computer interfaces that can be put on and taken off like a helmet or headbandno surgery required.

Human skulls are less than a centimeter thick: the exact thickness varies from person to person and place to place. They act as a blurring filter that diffuses waveforms, be they electrical currents, light, or sound. Neurons in the brain can be as small as a few thousandths of a millimeter in diameter and generate electrical impulses as weak as a twentieth of a volt.

The students experiment was intended to collect a baseline of data with which they could compare results from a new technique that Pulkit Grover, the teams principal investigator, hopes to develop.

Nothing like this is [now] possible, and its really hard to do, Grover says. He co-leads one of six teams taking part in the Next-generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology Program, or N, a $104 million effort launched this year by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA. While Grovers team is manipulating electrical and ultrasound signals, other teams use optical or magnetic techniques. If any of these approaches succeed, the results will be transformative.

Surgery is expensive, and surgery to create a new kind of super-warrior is ethically complicated. A mind-reading device that requires no surgery would open up a world of possibilities. Brain-computer interfaces, or BCIs, have been used to help people with quadriplegia regain limited control over their bodies, and to enable veterans who lost limbs in Iraq and Afghanistan to control artificial ones. N is the US militarys first serious attempt to develop BCIs with a more belligerent purpose. Working with drones and swarms of drones, operating at the speed of thought rather than through mechanical devicesthose types of things are what these devices are really for, says Al Emondi, the director of N.

UCLA computer scientist Jacques J. Vidal first used the term brain-computer interface in the early 1970s; its one of those phrases, like artificial intelligence, whose definition evolves as the capabilities it describes develop. Electroencephalography (EEG), which records electrical activity in the brain using electrodes placed on the skull, might be regarded as the first interface between brains and computers. By the late 1990s, researchers at Case Western Reserve University had used EEG to interpret a quadriplegic persons brain waves, enabling him to move a computer cursor by way of a wire extending from the electrodes on his scalp.

Both invasive and noninvasive techniques for reading from the brain have advanced since then. So too have devices that stimulate the brain with electrical signals to treat conditions such as epilepsy. Arguably the most powerful mechanism developed to date is called a Utah array. It looks like a little bed of spikes, about half the size of a pinkie nail in total, that can penetrate a given part of the brain.

One day in 2010, while on vacation in North Carolinas Outer Banks, Ian Burkhart dived into the ocean and banged his head on a sandbar. He crushed his spinal cord and lost function from the sixth cervical nerve on down. He could still move his arms at the shoulder and elbow, but not his hands or legs. Physical therapy didnt help much. He asked his doctors at Ohio State Universitys Wexner Medical Center if there was anything more they could do. It turned out that Wexner was hoping to conduct a study together with Battelle, a nonprofit research company, to see if they could use a Utah array to reanimate the limbs of a paralyzed person.

Where EEG shows the aggregate activity of countless neurons, Utah arrays can record the impulses from a small number of them, or even from a single one. In 2014, doctors implanted a Utah array in Burkharts head. The array measured the electric field at 96 places inside his motor cortex, 30,000 times per second. Burkhart came into the lab several times a week for over a year, and Battelle researchers trained their signal processing algorithms to capture his intentions as he thought, arduously and systematically, about how he would move his hand if he could.

A thick cable, connected to a pedestal coming out of Burkharts skull, sent the impulses measured by the Utah array to a computer. The computer decoded them and then transmitted signals to a sleeve of electrodes that nearly covered his right forearm. The sleeve activated his muscles to perform the motions he intended, such as grasping, lifting, and emptying a bottle, or removing a credit card from his wallet.

That made Burkhart one of the first people to regain control of his own muscles through such a neural bypass. Battelleanother of the teams in the N programis now working with him to see if they can achieve the same results without a skull implant.

That means coming up not just with new devices, but with better signal processing techniques to make sense of the weaker, muddled signals that can be picked up from outside the skull. Thats why the Carnegie Mellon N team is headed by Groveran electrical engineer by training, not a neuroscientist.

Im super motivated for it more than anyone else in the room.

Soon after Grover arrived at Carnegie Mellon, a friend at the University of Pittsburgh Medical School invited him to sit in on clinical meetings for epilepsy patients. He began to suspect that a lot more information about the brain could be inferred from EEG than anyone was giving it credit forand, conversely, that clever manipulation of external signals could have effects deep within the brain. A few years later, a team led by Edward Boyden at MITs Center for Neurobiological Engineering published a remarkable paper that went far beyond Grovers general intuition.

Boydens group had applied two electrical signals, of high but slightly different frequencies, to the outside of the skull. These didnt affect neurons close to the surface of the brain but those deeper inside it. In a phenomenon known as constructive interference, they combined to produce a lower-frequency signal that stimulated the neurons to fire.

Grover and his group are now working to extend Boydens results with hundreds of electrodes placed on the surface of the skull, both to precisely target small regions in the interior of the brain and to steer the signal so that it can switch from one brain region to another while the electrodes stay in place. Its an idea, Grover says, that neuroscientists would be unlikely to have had.

Meanwhile, at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), another N team is using a completely different approach: near-infrared light.

Current understanding is that neural tissue swells and contracts when neurons fire electrical signals. Those signals are what scientists record with EEG, a Utah array, or other techniques. APLs Dave Blodgett argues that the swelling and contraction of the tissue is as good a signal of neural activity, and he wants to build an optical system that can measure those changes.

The techniques of the past couldnt capture such tiny physical movements. But Blodgett and his team have already shown that they can see the neural activity of a mouse when it flicks a whisker. Ten milliseconds after a whisker flicks, Blodgett records the corresponding neurons firing using his optical measurement technique. (There are 1,000 milliseconds in a second, and 1,000 microseconds in a millisecond.) In exposed neural tissue, his team has recorded neural activity within 10 microsecondsjust as quickly as a Utah array or other electrical methods.

The next challenge is to do all that through the skull. This might sound impossible: after all, skulls are not transparent to visible light. But near-infrared light can travel through bone. Blodgetts team fires low-powered infrared lasers through the skull and then measures how the light from those lasers is scattered. He hopes this will let them infer what neural activity is taking place. The approach is less well proven than using electrical signals, but these are exactly the types of risks that DARPA programs are designed to take.

Back at Battelle, Gaurav Sharma is developing a new type of nanoparticle that can cross the blood-brain barrier. Its what DARPA calls a minimally invasive technique. The nanoparticle has a magnetically sensitive core inside a shell made of a material that generates electricity when pressure is applied. If these nanoparticles are subjected to a magnetic field, the inner core puts stress on the shell, which then generates a small current. A magnetic field is much better than light for seeing through the skull, Sharma says. Different magnetic coils allow the scientists to target specific parts of the brain, and the process can be reversedelectric currents can be converted to magnetic fields so the signals can be read.

It remains to be seen which, if any, of these approaches will succeed. Other N teams are using various combinations of light, electric, magnetic, and ultrasound waves to get signals in and out of the brain. The science is undoubtedly exciting. But that excitement can obscure how ill-equipped the Pentagon and corporations like Facebook, which are also developing BCIs, are to address the host of ethical, legal, and social questions a noninvasive BCI gives rise to. How might swarms of drones controlled directly by a human brain change the nature of warfare? Emondi, the head of N, says that neural interfaces will be used however they are needed. But military necessity is a malleable criterion.

In August, I visited a lab at Battelle where Burkhart had spent the previous several hours thinking into a new sleeve, outfitted with 150 electrodes that stimulate his arm muscles. He and researchers hoped they could get the sleeve to work without having to rely on the Utah array to pick up brain signals.

Burkhart had a Utah array, shown at right, implanted in his motor cortex in 2014. The Battelle group is now trying to develop a way to read his brain signals without a surgical implant.

If your spinal cord has been broken, thinking about moving your arm is hard work. Burkhart was tired. Theres a graded performance: how hard am I thinking about something translates into how much movement, he told me. Whereas before [the accident] you dont think, Open your handthe rest of us just pick up the bottle. But Im super motivated for itmore than anyone else in the room, he said. Burkhart made it easy to see the technologys potential.

He told me that since he started working with the Utah array, hes become stronger and more dexterous even when he isnt using itso much so that he now lives on his own, requiring assistance only a few hours a day. I talk more with my hands. I can hold onto my phone, he says. If it gets worked out to something that I can use every day, Id wear it as long as I can.

He was rejected in Mexico but now triumphs in Japan with a prosthesis that dominates with the mind. – The Yucatan Times

OSAKAJapn It was an important afternoon for Mexican scientist Christian Pealoza, back in 2017 when he closed a deal with the University of Osaka, the second most important in Japan: They want our project, he said emotionally.

Christian story is one of those that are sad and at the same time happy. His project was rejected in Mexico multiple times, but today his company, MIRAI INNOVATION, exports to the other side of the world.

Christian earned a doctorate in Japan and has been perfecting AURA, a device that processes signals from the brain, muscles and heart and converts them into concrete actions.We are collaborating with a researcher at UNAM who is developing a hand prosthesis with our software, so that people, just by thinking, can move the extremity he explains.

Recently his research was popularized around the world by a video in which a person moves a third robotic arm only with his mind, while with his hands he balances a ball on a tray. People can handle three arms at the same time, N+1mediareported.

His system can be used in various industries, in medical rehabilitation so that patients can, for example, control a prosthesis or a wheelchair with their minds. Also, with AURA users could play video games without using a control: just with their thoughts.

In Europe this technology costs 15 or 16 thousand dollars (almost 300 thousand pesos), but Christian managed to lower prices for the Mexican market: We managed to reduce them to 3 thousand 500 dollars (65 thousand pesos). This makes it more accessible for research centers and universities. Christian explains.

The system that Christian developed looks like a box with several cables: these are the electrodes that are connected to a cap or in the muscles to detect brain signals and muscle impulses. The information is sent to a computer, where you can see the activity of the brain or body.

Similar advances already exist in other countries in the field of neurotechnology: Facebook is working to get people to write with their thoughts. Nissan announced a car that receives brain signals to prevent accidents. Very important players are betting on this. Its the future, Christian says.

However, scientists believe that the same thing does not happen in Mexico and Latin America and attributes the delay to two factors: low investment in science, and the lack of tools for technological development: Generally these are promoted in technologically positioned countries such as Japan, the United States and Germany, but they take time to reach Mexico, and that causes a delay to us, he says.

In Mexico under Lopez Obradors government, all scholarships to study abroad have been canceled under presidential orders. AMLO claims that people who leave Mexico to study some place else are tourists.

Currently under the presidency of Lopez Obrador, most of CONACYTs support for science and technology is none existent. Other countries such as the United States invests 3% of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in research and development. This is equivalent to 20% of the GDP of all Latin American countries as a whole. To be a competitive region it would have to invest a quarter or fifth of its GDP, according to a study by UNAMs Faculty of Sciences.

Christian studied a masters degree in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence and a doctorate in Cognitive Neuroscience applied to Robotics in Japan, but getting there was not easy. After the Mexican government refused him a scholarship, thanks to the help of his parents and with his own savings he traveled to Japan, where he worked temporarily in a restaurant to subsidize his expenses.

Although Christian is 14 hours from his country, he does not abandon the idea of having his company in Tijuana and a representative in Mexico City: It was very complicated. I looked for research funds, but I didnt get the support I was looking for. I submitted five applications to Conacyt [National Council for Science and Technology] and none passed. A project I sent to the Instituto Nacional del Emprendedor didnt happen either.

Even though Congress has approved CONACYT to receive more funds there has been a reduction over last year, according to the General Directorate of Science Dissemination of UNAM.

Although his project was rejected in Mexico, Christian applied to a research fund in Japan: A research very similar to the one I proposed in Conacyt was accepted here. They gave me 100,000 dollars. He explains.

With the help of his brothers and one of his best friends, as partners and investors, he created Mirai Innovation. It means innovation of the future in Japanese, says Christian. The objective is to channel the knowledge acquired in Japan, and support me with the Mexican human capital to promote the technologies there, Christian says. Thank God I had people who believe in me and gave me their support.

Helping young peopleChristian was named by MIT Technology Review, a publication of one of the worlds leading universities, part of the ten most innovative young people under the age of 35 in Mexico. He received the Innovator of the Year award, a worldwide recognition for young people who provide solutions to global problems.

Ten people work at Mirai Innovation: We are a small team, we are distributed in Tijuana, Mexico City and Japan, he says.

Christian hired university talents: Alan and Rodrigo, 21 years old, are students and entered a few months ago, through a professional internship agreement with CETYS University in Tijuana, he explains.

Carlos, on the other hand, is 23 and won the Ceneval award as his universitys best score: I brought him to Japan six months ago and here we developed AURA, along with Bruno, another talented Mexican who is doing his doctorate here. Lizeth supports the researcher from Mexico City, she was selected by the American Young Leaders Initiative promoted by the U.S. Embassy.

However, some of the agreements he has tried to make have been frustrated by the lack of support. With the University of Chihuahua we put two projects to CONACYT. They accepted the first stage, but in the second they rejected us. We were going to make a robotic prosthesis for people with disabilities that would be cheaper and easier to use, because it would be controlled with the brain An agreement had already been made with the research institute where I work in Japan to bring them here, train them and then return to Mexico. These are events that werent achieved because we didnt get support, Christian laments.

With this new support from Japan, Christian and his team work on a humanoid robot to help older adults with dementia improve their mobility in physical therapies. Its a pilot project in collaboration with the Ensenada Center for Scientific Research and Higher Education: This is the way I can contribute, change the paradigm from the brain drain to the circularity of knowledge. Its love for Mexico. I like to take the country forward, concludes Christian, who is president of the Japan Chapter of the network of qualified Mexicans abroad RedGlobalMX.
