Whiz Kids: Using haptics for surgical simulation

In an earlier post, I highlighted one very impressive augmented-reality project from the the Clinical Anatomy Research Scholars (CARS) program at Stanford. Through CARS, 15 lucky interns are invited to campus to conduct research alongside professors in a variety of fields, including medicine, surgical simulation, robots, and biomedical visualization.

Over the next week, I'll be highlighting more video presentations from the students. In this video, high-school student Matthew Miller talks about his project studying how haptic technologies might improve surgical simulation.

This video has also been entered in NPR's "What's Your Big Idea?" video contest. You can get a sense of the videos submitted from NPR's contest playlist.

The CARS program is based in the Division of Clinical Anatomy and is directed by W. Paul Brown, DDS.

Sex biology redefined: Genes don’t indicate binary sexes

The scenario many of us learned in school is that two X chromosomes make someone female, and an X and a Y chromosome make someone male. These are simplistic ways of thinking about what is scientifically very complex.
