well, it seems the dreaded day has actually, finally arrived. It would now appear necessary to evaluate real time tables and monitor definitive imminent infusion. It would appear to now be a case of "take desired action expeditiously, while it is still possible to make any conscious, independent choice and act upon it."

Scientists build world's tiniest hammer to bang on brain cells

Spoiler:
Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Scientists at the University of California, Santa Barbara want to study the effects of various mechanical forces on individual brain cells. Until now, however, researchers didn't have the right tools.

To study brain impacts at the nanoscale, researchers built the world's tiniest hammer -- the μHammer, or "microHammer." The μHammer is a cellular-scale machine capable of applying a variety of mechanical forces to neural progenitor cells, brain-centric stem cells. Eventually, scientists hope to use the hammer to apply forces to neurons and neural tissue.

The hammer piggybacks on existing cell-sorting technology which isolates individual cells for diagnostics and immunotherapy. Once isolated, the machine can apply a range of forces. Post-impact structural and biomechanical analysis will allow scientists study the effects of focus in near real-time.

"This project will enable precision measurements of the physical, chemical and biological changes that occur when cells are subjected to mechanical loading, ranging from small perturbations to high-force, high-speed impacts," researcher Megan Valentine said in a news release. "Our technology will provide significantly higher forces and faster impact cycles than have previously been possible, and by building these tools onto microfluidic devices, we can leverage a host of other on-chip diagnostics and imaging tools, and can collect the cells after testing for longer-term studies."

The research isn't so much about studying traumatic brain impacts as it is about understanding the role mechanical forces play in cellular communication.

"Mechanical forces have been shown to impact cells a lot," said researcher Kimberly Turner.

Previous studies suggest mechanical forces can trigger a variety of cellar changes. An impact can cause cells to differentiate or begin healing.

"Our studies could transform our understanding of how cells process and respond to force-based signals," Valentine concluded.

"These signals are essential in development and wound healing in healthy tissues, and are misregulated in diseases such as cancer."

Surely they mean cellular? Or are these earthquake-level forces they're talking about?

Or a more sinister change in perception? ......

Lol ! I see you've chosen to diverge from your usual form of mitigation here, Steam !

I am already on track in following through on (what is normally) such a capacity ~ it will nevertheless be tough getting around the "explanations" given by researcher Megan Valentine there . . . did you ever hear such a non-layman's description of a technological breakthrough of such potential human impact?
I keep on re-reading that, and there is nothing about it which seems in any way as if she was even attempting to make it even vaguely cognisable. Well, to my single-functioning brain-cell anyway...

One statement in that article does, however, send the message home quite forcefully ~ if in a rather slippery way :

"... scientists hope to use the hammer to apply forces to neurons ..."

even the least knowledgeable among us (me, for instance) knows that means quite literally influencing thought. .

cheers, SteamAbacus ~
:-)
enjoyable stuff !

listening to these lyrics, I'm thinking it's probably best for everyone concerned if they avoid getting into_ moi__head, as what they are likely to find inside could mean the end of the human race as we know it !!
:lol:
