(TheEngineer) Researchers at Purdue University in Indiana have engineered a quantum material to interact with living brain matter. The material may help in early diagnosis of neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s, and could even unlock science-fiction concepts like downloading the contents of the brain. These are still a long way off, but the team, led…..
