According to them, the movement of the captured particles can be controlled using an alternating magnetic field, which will allow them to reach the desired parts of the brain and affect its functioning, according to the institute's press service.The researchers' main goal was to test whether electromagnetic nanorobots will work inside living brain cells.One of the researchers said: "For the first time in the world, we were able to show that the simplest nanorobots can penetrate neurons, and their movement throughout the body can be effectively controlled. "First, the targeted delivery of nanorobots to the deeper parts of the brain will make it possible to treat neurodegenerative diseases. Periodic stimulation of the parts of the brain responsible for perceiving odors is known to be effective in treating Parkinson's disease. To activate these neurons, different methods are used, for example, by introducing odors or using strong magnetic fields that affect a large number of neurons simultaneously."With the help of magnetic and electronanorobots, it is possible to achieve a more pronounced and focused therapeutic effect, and actually correct the functioning of the brain." The second potential use of nanorobots is to use them to deliver drugs: In particular, the staff of the laboratory animal genetics laboratory of the Institute of Cytology and Genetics, together with their colleagues, are now studying the possibility of delivering drugs using nanoparticles to brain tumors, which form entangled connections with surrounding cells. According to scientists, these connections can be used for the targeted non-surgical delivery of the drug to cancer cells.The institute also suggests that nanorobots could be used in a promising field of modern medicine - the treatment of neuroregenerative processes to eliminate the consequences of neuronal death as a result of injuries or strokes.Scientists at the International Research Center for Piezoelectric and Electromagnetic Materials at Tomsk Applied Arts University have developed the simplest electromagnetic nanorobots used in the study. These mechanical particles are able, under the influence of an alternating external magnetic field, to exert an electrical effect on the cell, stimulating its activity.
