Sakhrat Khizroev, a researcher at Florida International University, potentially found a cure for multiple brain diseases.  According to Khizroev, “We learned to control electrical forces in the brain using magnetics, we pretty much opened a pathway to the brain.’’  The approach taken uses magnetic energy to manipulate the electrical charges of those particles once they are inside the brain.  This gives researchers the ability to directly apply medicine to regions of the brain which were never reachable before.  The science is complicated at best but if you are interested in reading more about this research visit the websites and articles on FIU’s Center for Nano-Medicine,  The Miami Herald or The Raw Story.
