Scientists create brain-mimicking environment to grow 3D tissue modules of brain tunors

In the United States, Medford city, a team of Tufts University-led researchers has developed three-dimensional (3D) human tissue culture models of pediatric and adult brain cancers in a brain-mimicking microenvironment, a significant advancement for the study of brain tumor biology and pharmacological response. As per media reports, the study created models that include brain-derived extracellular matrix (ECM), the complex network of proteins and amino acids with bound sugars naturally found in the brain, which helps to guide cell growth and development. The reports added that in an important advance, the ECM-containing 3D matrix in this study has allowed for the propagation and study of primary tumor cells taken directly from the patient, and to grow them in an environment more similar to the brain.

Google Pixel 4 series to offer 'Live Caption': Here's how the feature works

The upcoming Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, will feature 'Live Caption' that will write out audio into subtitles and put them on the screen. As per media reports, the Live Caption feature is similar to Live Transcribe. But, Live Transcribe listens to what people around are saying and prints it on a phone's display. Live Caption processes the audio from video, podcasts and other sources to provide you with real-time captions. The reports further said that Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will also feature a new Motion Sense Mode (which uses radar technology to detect hand gesture), and will work with nine applications that have been whitelisted as Supported Apps.
