Neuroscientists Develop Pulsed Ultrasound Method to Control Brain Circuits Without Surgery

Neuroscientists at Arizona State University (USA) have used pulsed ultrasound methods to activate brain
circuit movements without invasive surgery. Their research, which was published in the Public Library of Sci-
ence One, offers answers into how low-power ultrasound can be used in this area and provides the possi-
bility for fresh treatments of brain disorders and disease. Through the technique of optically studying the
movement of neuronal circuits while simultaneously breeding low-intensity, low-frequency ultrasound
through brain tissues, the researchers believe they have found a strong vehicle for adjusting the activity of
neural circuits

OSU Students Set World Records with Unmanned Airplane

A team of Oklahoma State University, USA, aerospace engineering students have
set world records for duration and closed course distance with their autonomous
unmanned aerial vehicle, named Pterosoar-B. Once it is launched, the plane ope-
rates with autopilot software which is programmed to respond to disturbances the
aircraft faces during flight. "We wanted to learn about the construction technolo-
gy involved because unmanned planes can eventually do jobs that pilots are not
needed for, such as border control and surveying," said team leader Ryan Paul.
Paul and two team members, Cody Pinkerman and Valentin Sanchez, began the
summer of 2008 working 16 hours a day to build their airplane and modify the
design to set the world record in the F8 category. Ph.D. student Joe Conner, an
autopilot expert, helped with the project. The team said they will attempt to set
