    A poet might say that each human being's heart is a unique mystery. Those of us working in the brand new field of computational medicine, however, can now model each of those unique hearts with marvelous accuracy and reveal their secrets. In my laboratory at Johns Hopkins University, my team creates computer models to simulate individual patients' hearts, which can help cardiologists carry out lif... View full abstract»

    Cooled to a few degrees above absolute zero, a superconducting quantum interference device, or SQUID, can do something amazing: detect a magnetic field only a millionth as strong as the human brain's, or less than 5 quintillionths of a tesla.ยท Measuring such minute magnetic fields turns out to be useful for many things, including geophysical and archeological surveys, detection of the cosmic micro...

Sure, it cools us when we overheat, but most of the time we think of it purely as an inconvenience. We may soon, however, learn to like our sweat a lot more-or at least what it can reveal about our health. We'd certainly prefer giving a doctor a little sweat to being puncture...

    You're traveling down the highway with the road flashing by beneath your feet and the scenery looming everywhere- fore and aft, left and right, above and below. Gone are the usual blind spots created by your vehicle's doors, window frames, roof, and floor. You're as free as a bird and just as aware of your surroundings. We call this form of augmented reality a transparent cockpit because it would ... View full abstract»
