A microscopic swarm, just a few millimetres in length, can move through a maze with a just few clicks of a mouse. The swarm is formed from millions of magnetic nanoparticles suspended in a rapidly oscillating magnetic field. Researchers in China have been testing the new technology by altering the magnetic field to move the swarm around various obstacles.

في رأيي ، أعتقد أن هذه التكنولوجيا هي حديثة نسبياً ، ولكن عندما تقرأ الورقة العلمية ، فأنت متأكد أنها حديثة ، لذا أعتقد أن هناك فشلاً في صنع الفيديو.
أعتقد أن المشروع متخصص في مجالات الكيمياء الحيوية ليس في العملية الجراحة كثيراً
Just once I'd love to see the paper authors and university press department be HONEST about this kind of research and simply say "this has no real world applications at all and is completely useless, we just thought it was neat.". Then I would actually respect them. The constant absurdly implausible reaching for "applications" to keep the funding $ flowing is so lame.
Your respect won't pay the bills or bring together the talent necessary to discover unique applications of principles. Basic research is important, but unfortunately, a lot of funding won't go to the grants that say "I dunno, could be cool. Someone might find a use one day."
But I could see medical uses for this theoretically, probably not practically.
Everything shown on this channel has "medical applications", but they never say what. I think its a very poor explanation for why something is useful. Scratch youre head a little more and suggest some real applications. If you can come up with one its probably not very useful
Too bad... Your first response was fair and informative.. The second was incredibly haughty and condescending, contributing nothing but a massive Ad Hominem you spent too much time on..
The second guy actually was partly right, while you decided to attack him for no reason.
You call him a child, but you seriously need to work on your own maturity if your comment is any indication...
It's sad really..
+10mintwo No need to announce you're an idiot; we have plenty of those, child. Just because you couldn't get into a college doesn't mean that people who did aren't your betters. You're an ignorant moron accomplishing nothing while using technology to complain about its development. You're so dumb you don't even realize you're an embarrassment and that what you said exposes only your failure in life.
SURPRISE it's not useful at all and has no real world applications just like 90% of all other research. The "it could be used for drug delivery!" "it could be used by the military!" "we could be seeing this in grocery stores in 5 years!" is 100% university press release department bullshit designed to keep the $$ flowing into the college. Ignore it.
Literally in the same sentence, smfh.
"This technology may have medical applications, *perhaps delivering drugs around the body or acting as a contrast agent for x-rays or ultrasound scans.* "
Listening comprehension>you. The video is not even two minutes long. They also link the paper in the description but reading clearly would be too much for you.
From the paper
"The microswarm may provide inspiration and solution for applications such as targeted delivery, maskless ribbon-like patterning for microfabrication and micromanipulation."
Hmm. shades of Magneto. This tech could easily be used as an assassin's weapon. Artificial blood clot to the heart, lungs or brain your trget dies and then you an disperse the clot's magnetic particles.
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
