With "The Virtual Brain" to a digital doppelganger

Dear Sir or Madam,

Can you imagine what would be possible with personalized brain models in the future? Berlin scientists are working on this within the framework of a major research project. They are developing an open source platform in which experimental brain data from various sources can be linked. The aim is to have a validated, well-documented software that every laboratory can use. Read what's behind it in our news at MEDICA-tradefair.com!

Have a summery week,

Wearable device can predict older adults' risk of falling

Every year, more than one in three individuals aged 65 and older will experience a fall. Falls are the most common cause of injury in older adults, and can create ongoing health problems. But treatment and awareness of falling usually happens after a fall has already occurred.

Artificial intelligence helps predict drug combinations' side effects

Last month alone, 23 percent of Americans took two or more prescription drugs, according to one CDC estimate, and 39 percent over age 65 take five or more, a number that's increased three-fold in the last several decades. And if that isn't surprising enough, try this one: in many cases, doctors have no idea what side effects might arise from adding another drug to a patient's personal pharmacy.
