Maludong

The pattern of modern human settlement in East Asia is still largely debated, mostly because of the scarce fossil record. Now we have two more specimens from southwest China, at the transition between Pleistocene and Holocene: Longlin and Maludong. Darren Curnoe and colleagues provide a general morphological analysis of the fossil remains. They reconstruct the endocast of Maludong 1704, giving information on the fronto-parietal proportions. The estimated cranial capacity is 1327 cc.

  • Modelling brain-skull interface
    Precise computational modelling of the brain-skull interface is necessary for the prediction, prevention and treatment of acquired brain-injuries. The brain-skull interface comprises complex layers including the osseous cranial tissues, meninges, sub-arachnoidal space and tissues, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), pia mater and the gray and white cerebral matter. W […]

    Researchers at MIT have developed a new method of electrically stimulating deep brain tissues without opening the skullSince 1997, more than 100,000 Parkinson’s Disease patients have been treated with deep brain stimulation (DBS), a surgical technique that involves the implantation of ultra-thin wire electrodes. The implanted device, sometimes referred to as […]
