Researchers think that in the not-too-distant future, tiny robots, called nanobots, might be just the tools to overcome this challenge. Using computer simulations, a team of Greek medical engineers has modelled the way nanobots injected into the brain might crawl along neurons, pinching them to see if they are healthy or not (healthy ones would respond with an electrical signal, while damaged ones would not), thus pinpointing the exact location of damage that is hard to spot on most brain scans. 0 More: Daily Dose: Can you really be allergic to alcohol?
