The robot becomes an increasingly customised commodity as Stanford University researchers develope and are use the world's most sophisticated fly catcher speeding up the rate of scientific insight into such diseases as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. Using robotics, computer vision, and high speed cameras, with a powerful suit of sensors, the robot can handle and study fruit flies with an unprecedented speed and accuracy.
A third Univerisity contributes to important Parkinson's research as a University of Dundee research team, reveals a stage-by-stage picture of a key cellular mechanism associated with the development of Parkinson’s Disease for the first time. These give further understanding of the possible causes of Parkinson’s disease and offer potential for multiple targets for therapeutics to be developed.
