New method shows it is possible to grow bone for grafts within a patient's body

... did so without having to coax the bone to grow by applying the growth factors required by previous in vivo efforts. Furthermore, they found that the new bone can be detached easily before it fuses with the old bone, leaving the old bone scarred but intact. "The new bone actually has comparable strength and ...

To translate touch, the brain can quickly rearrange its sense of the body

.... The sense of touch was altered within seconds of applying the vibration, suggesting a very strong and fast link between the brain systems for touch and body position. The observations showed that abnormal input into one of the body's sensory systems produced a rapid and profound change in another sensory s...
