Artificial Neurons Developed to Fight Disease
#1
They’re tiny chips that can be used to cure diseases like Alzheimer’s. Neurons carry signals to and from the brain and the rest of the body. Scientists want to replace them with these artificial ones because the real ones can degenerate or die. This has been a long-term goal and they have finally been able to accomplish it. They have also found out that there are two types of neurones, cells from your brain that play a role in memory and the other involved in the control of breathing. This has allowed for an increase in the possibilities of repairing neurons and also helping cure many diseases. 

What are your thoughts and opinions on this concept? Do you think it will actually help humans with diseases? What other things do you think neurons can help with?

this is fantastic. If we are able to find cures to diseases such as Alzheimer's than we can be able to cure much more. The time to find cures takes a very very long time, but i believe the human race, with time, is smart enough to find a cure to anything. It is amazing that they are able to replace neurons with artificial ones as well as repairing neurons, as I know everything that has to do with your brain is very fragile.

The fact that humans can use technology to potentially treat diseases such as Alzheimer's is really amazing. This is a huge step into the future and could really benefit humans. Modern medicine paired with the use of technology creates fascinating things together, and they are only just getting started. This is a very inspiring and cool article.

This is really awesome. I wonder how far this could go in treating mental disorders and helping people who suffer from them.
