AI could close gaps in care for women with heart attacks

Researchers have developed a new risk score based on artificial intelligence that improves personalized care for heart attack patients. Heart attacks are one of the leading causes of death worldwide, and women who experience a heart attack have a higher mortality rate than men. This has worried cardiologists for decades and led to controversy in …

The new soft implantable probe can monitor fluctuations in chemicals in the brain

The new string-like implant can monitor fluctuations in chemicals in the brain, as a fitness tracker for the brain. An imbalance in brain chemistry is the basis of many neurological diseases. These same brain chemicals also play a role in gut health. So Stanford researchers have invented the “NeuroString” – a soft implantable probe that …
