Not only can research participants control a prosthetic hand with their minds—now they can begin to “feel” it, too.
AI could run a million microbial experiments per year
Automation uncovers combinations of amino acids that feed two bacterial species and could tell us much more about the 90% of bacteria that humans have hardly studied.
Study finds exhaled breath could enhance detection, diagnosis of COVID-19 and variants
Research suggests volatile organic compounds in breath could mark distinction between COVID-19, variants and non-COVID illnesses.
U-M researchers helping to develop a machine for on-demand N95 mask manufacturing
A new industry partnership seeks to enable on-demand local manufacturing of next-generation N95s with innovative designs and materials.
How sound waves trigger immune responses to cancer in mice
Technique pioneered at the University of Michigan could improve outcomes for cancer and neurological conditions.
Simple neural networks outperform the state-of-the-art for controlling robotic prosthetics
And that tracks with the way our motor circuits work—we’re not that complicated.
