3D Face Scans That Spot Early Autism and Help Identify Genes Responsible (VIDEO) Autism has been a disease difficult to identify in young children, often preventing initiation of early stage therapy that can have the most dramatic positive impact.

3D Face Scans That Spot Early Autism and Help Identify Genes Responsible (VIDEO)

Researchers at University of Missouri, spurred by one of the scientists on the team who has been working with autistic kids and seemed to have noticed patterns, wanted to see whether children with autism have any characteristic facial features, since many brain conditions are known to.

In what could have profound implications for understanding the process of aging, a trio of scientific papers published today show that infusing elderly mice with the blood of young mice can reverse many of the mental and physical impairments of growing old.

Swapping Young Blood for Old Reverses Aging

Expanding on earlier research, the three studies—published concurrently in Nature Medicine and Science—demonstrate rejuvenating effects in memory, muscle strength, endurance, and sense of smell. Together, they suggest that there might be factors in the young blood that can produce globally regenerating effects in older animals. In addition to reversing the normal ravages of aging, the papers suggest, young blood might help turn around declines in cognitive function associated with age-related conditions such as heart enlargement and Alzheimer's disease.

Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine. Imagine if you could take living cells, load them into a printer, and squirt out a 3D tissue that could develop into a kidney or a heart.

Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine

Scientists are one step closer to that reality, now that they have developed the first printer for embryonic human stem cells. In a new study, researchers from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh have created a cell printer that spits out living embryonic stem cells. The printer was capable of printing uniform-size droplets of cells gently enough to keep the cells alive and maintain their ability to develop into different cell types. The new printing method could be used to make 3D human tissues for testing new drugs, grow organs, or ultimately print cells directly inside the body. Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) are obtained from human embryos and can develop into any cell type in an adult person, from brain tissue to muscle to bone.
