Network neuroscience theory best predictor of intelligence, study finds

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, mapping, neuroscience, robotics/AI

Scientists have labored for decades to understand how brain structure and functional connectivity drive intelligence. A new analysis offers the clearest picture yet of how various brain regions and neural networks contribute to a person’s problem-solving ability in a variety of contexts, a trait known as general intelligence, researchers report.

They detail their findings in the journal Human Brain Mapping.

The study used “connectome-based predictive modeling” to compare five theories about how the gives rise to , said Aron Barbey, a professor of psychology, bioengineering and neuroscience at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign who led the new work with first author Evan Anderson, now a researcher for Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corp. working at the Air Force Research Laboratory.

Gene editing: a new modification moves to human tests

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical

In April 2016, Waseem Qasim, a professor of cell and gene therapy, was intrigued by a new scientific paper that described a revolutionary way to manipulate DNA: basic gene editing. The articlepublished by David Liu’s lab at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, described a version of Crispr gene editing that allowed for more precise changes than ever before.

Could We Really Increase Human IQ via Genetic Engineering?

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, ethics, genetics

It’s not clear what, explicitly, human intelligence is or even how it originates. Ethics aside, there’s no way to decide who to save and who to throw away.

New biomaterial can regenerate bones and prevent infections

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, bioengineering, biotech/medical

Researchers in Spain have developed a new porous material capable of regenerating bones and preventing infections at the same time.

The scientists are from the Bioengineering and Biomaterials Laboratory of Universidad Católica de Valencia (UCV).

Tailor-made for each case using 3D printing, the biotech creations contain a bioactive alginate coating. This coating induces bone regeneration and destroys the bacteria that sometimes prevent bone formation from being completed.

Kent team creates material that can stop supersonic impacts

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biological, physics, space

A Kent team, led by Professors Ben Goult and Jen Hiscock, has created and patented a ground-breaking new shock-absorbing material that could revolutionise both the defence and planetary science sectors.

This novel protein-based family of materials, named TSAM (Talin Shock Absorbing Materials), represents the first known example of a SynBio (or synthetic biology) material capable of absorbing supersonic projectile impacts. This opens the door for the development of next-generation bullet-proof armour and projectile capture materials to enable the study of hypervelocity impacts in space and the upper atmosphere (astrophysics).

Professor Ben Goult explained: Our work on the protein talin, which is the cells natural shock absorber, has shown that this molecule contains a series of binary switch domains which open under tension and refold again once tension drops. This response to force gives talin its molecular shock absorbing properties, protecting our cells from the effects of large force changes. When we polymerised talin into a TSAM, we found the shock absorbing properties of talin monomers imparted the material with incredible properties.’

Stresses and hydrodynamics: Scientists uncover new organizing principles of the genome

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical

A team of scientists has uncovered the physical principles—a series of forces and hydrodynamic flows—that help ensure the proper functioning of life’s blueprint. Its discovery provides new insights into the genome while potentially offering a new means to spot genomic aberrations linked to developmental disorders and human diseases.

“The way in which the is organized and packed inside the nucleus directly affects its biological function, yet the physical principles behind this organization are far from understood,” explains Alexandra Zidovska, an associate professor in New York University’s Department of Physics and an author of the paper, which appears in the journal Physical Review X (PRX). “Our results provide fundamental insights into the biophysical origins of the organization of the genome inside the .”

Transhumanism and Human Genetic Engineering — ROBERT SEPEHR

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, genetics, life extension, nanotechnology, robotics/AI, transhumanism

Transhumanism advocates the use of current and emerging technologies such as genetic engineering, artificial intelligence, and nanotechnology, to augment human capabilities, enhance longevity, and improve cognition. The term “designer baby” refers to a child who would develop from an embryo or sperm or egg that had been genetically altered. Is there a covert political agenda behind this allegedly altruistic scientific movement?

Robert Sepehr is an anthropologist and author.
