Scientists believe that embryonic stem cells are more versatile. Although some may argue that embryonic stem cell research is unethical, many of the embryos are willingly donated. According to the associated content.com article # 72918, stem cell research have amazing medical potential; by regenerating cells and organs, it has the ability to cure disease that previously might h... ... middle of paper ... ...we can cure diabetes and so many other things. Conclusion Choosing to support or oppose embryonic cell research is a personal choice. It appears to me that the ethical choice is why many people will either support or oppose embryonic stem cell research.
These devices have been used to restore motor function in those that have been paralyzed and have even been used to reduce tremor in patients with diseases such as Parkinson’s. The continual advancement of this technology is now to the extent that one person could control the motor movements of another or even that a person could download their memories or thoughts. The exciting advancement in this field of research has definite ethical issues that it brings to question. The argument against this technology is the clear danger of power it exhibits. If an authority figure had the ability to control other people’s movements they could be forced into situations they felt... ... middle of paper ... ...ons that are currently present in the ever advancing biomedical field.
Externally, a microphone picks up sound from the environment, and a speech processor filters the sound selectively for audible speech and sends it to a transmitter, from which the processed sound signals are sent to the internal deice. Internally, a receiver and stimulator converts the signal into electric impulses which are sent to an array of electrodes, and from there to the brain through the auditory nerve system (Mackay 51). Hearing aids and cochlear implants dif... ... middle of paper ... ...ave, there are also some risks to the procedure as well. Some risks to a cochlear implant procedure are injury to the facial nerve, meningitis, cerebrospinal fluid leakage, perilymph fluid leak, infection, blood or fluid collection, attacks of dizziness or vertigo, tinnitus, taste disturbances, and numbness around the ear (U.S. Food and Drug Administration.) Several parents and people who need cochlear implants are frightened to have the surgery once they see the list of complications that can occur.
However, even though ultrasounds benefit people, many wonder if ultrasounds may have bad effects too. Many wonder how do ultrasounds truly work. Ultrasounds are actually more complex than what they seem to be. First, the ultrasound machine transmits high-frequency sound pulses into your body using a probe, and then sound waves travel into your body and hit a boundary between tissues (Freudenrich, 2011). An example of this would be between fluid and soft tissue and soft tissue and bone.
The people who receive a cochlear implant is very risks from the surgical which it could damage to the facial nerve that can cause stroke, paralysis, and other injuries including the possibly attacks of dizziness or vertigo, infection, numbness around the ear, cerebrospinal fluid leakage, and taste disturbances. How does it differ from hearing aids? The hearing aids work by amplifying sound, flexibility, and accessibility for repairs. You can take advantage of new technology as it becomes available just like you can take advantage of new iPhone device generation when it becomes available. While cochlear implant perform implant surgery, as the implant will be placed behind and above the ear.
The pacemaker type machine that connects the implanted electrodes in these patients is improving, and has shown great success and even more future potential to stop the tremors in a Parkinson’s patient with the flip of a switch. Additionally, experimental DBS has shown almost immediate and profound affects on patients with severe depression. More research is needed to fine tune DBS, but it is a great way to target problems that deal with larger areas of the brain. Another potential benefit of cognitive enhancements it the ability to reverse the “broken” senses, such as sight, hearing and feeling.

Technology and techniques in human cloning are advancing every day. The future of human cloning could hold great promise in solving some of society's most troubling issues such as solving infertility, curing fatal and non-fatal diseases; healing, discovering new and easier ways to transplant organs, and much more. With the breakthroughs in science achieved by scientists in the past and present; human cloning could one day be accepted by society. Human cloning could not only help provide a larger range of diversity, but also help to improve the well-being of society in many ways. The most frequently expressed concern about human cloning is that it’s “unethical”.
Sure, in the beginning there would be a lot of mistakes, but it will be worth it in the future when there are no diseases and people wont die from organ failures. Legalizing human cloning would make scientist able to research and develop human cloning techniques, and thus better our world for future generations.
This means that our technology can detect and decode signals more clearly, opening up the possibility of robotic prosthetics that could be far more intuitive and useful for patients” (Smith). Overall, one could see why someone would see this as a finished and market ready advancement, but this method of sensory technology is still just in development, and simply opens up the possibilities for expanding the field of robotic
Human genetic engineering can do many great things for the people. It can improve many people’s daily lives, enhance bodies, help humans live longer, help reshape the human race, and even serve as protection. Human genetic engineering is beneficial for improving life and helping many. To begin with, people believe human genetic engineering is harmful to the body, but it can help cure diseases that before could not be treated.
