Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), despite being one of the most pivotal innovations of contemporary medicine, is markedly limited due to its safety, cost, and inability to discern micro-insults within the brain (Glover, 2011). In 1992, scientists introduced functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), a non-invasive technique intended to measure brain activity with unparalleled specificity (Soares, et Read the full article…


A Blast of Clean Energy

Serviceable fusion power is a near-ideal source of effectively limitless clean energy—its high energy density, safety, and sustainability distinguish fusion from any other energy source today. Despite this, the funds required for fusion research and its highly specialized conditions of operation hinder its feasibility in the market (Cowley, 2016). However, as global energy use continues Read the full article…


The Exciting Future of Electrified Medicine

Within the medical community, the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease (PD) has remained a challenging and unresolved endeavour. The history of PD is extensive; despite being discovered by Dr. James Parkinson over 200 years ago, researchers are yet to find a cure (Goetz, 2011; Rizek, Kumar and Jog, 2016).
