World’s Tiniest MicroHammer Developed to Study Brain Cells During Accident

SPENCER BRUTTIG

Researchers at University of California, Santa Barbara in the US have built what they called a MicroHammer, the world’s tiniest hammer to measure brain cells undergo change during traumatic injuries after accidents or due to diseases like Alzheimer’s. When head injuries take place, crack, accompanied by shock and swelling or a minor bump or visible scrape on the outside of ...
