A simple sniff181978https://source.wustl.edu/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/BugStory_Final.mp4 Engineers at Washington University have discovered a new technique that could change drug delivery to the brain. They were able to apply a nanoparticle aerosol spray to the antenna of locusts, then track the nanoparticles as they traveled through the olfactory nerves, crossed the blood-brain barrier and accumulated in the brain. This new, non-invasive approach could someday make drug delivery as simple as a sniff for patients with brain injuries or tumors.4/21/2017 2:41:40 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu4/21/2017 2:41:40 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
WashU engineer aims to change group dynamics181791  ​An engineer at Washington University in St. Louis plans to develop principles that could be used to control the collective behavior of individuals in a group that could ultimately be applied to yield high-resolution medical images, reduce jet lag, stabilize power systems and shed light on advancing brain-stimulation technology.4/19/2017 3:40:01 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu4/19/2017 3:40:01 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js

Studying the brain’s suspension system in TBIs27985​Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can be devastating and debilitating. Despite intense interest and years of study, the exact mechanisms linking force and neurological injury remain unclear. Researchers know that the membranes separating the skull from the brain play a key role in absorbing shock and preventing damage caused during a head impact, but the details remain largely mysterious.4/12/2017 5:04:12 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu4/12/2017 5:04:12 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
