Adaptive soft materials that can autonomously or programmably change their shapes are of significant recent interest due to their broad applications. On page 1541 John A. Rogers, Hanqing Jiang , and co-workers combine compliant electrode arrays in open-mesh constructs with hydrogels to yield a class of soft actuator, capable of complex, programmable changes(More)
The human face is a complex assemblage of highly variable yet clearly heritable anatomic structures that together make each of us unique, distinguishable, and recognizable. Relatively little is known about the genetic underpinnings of normal human facial variation. To address this, we carried out a large genomewide association study and two independent(More)
Congenital analgesia is a rare genetic disorder. We report here that a 12-year-old boy was able to recover from congenital insensitivity to pain. Neurological examinations revealed that there was a 'stocking' distribution of pain decrement on the lower extremities under the patient's knee joints. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of his brain showed gyrus(More)

Abstract: The mechanical properties of ordinary materials degrade substantially with reduced density, due to the bending of their structural elements under applied load. We report a class of micro-architected materials that maintain a(More)
We report a case of congenital lumbosacral limb duplication at the pelvis, lower limb, and foot of a 4-year-old boy. The patient presented with a supernumerary lower limb joined at the lumbosacral region by a bony connection. A pseudo-navel and a pseudo-penis were found on the supernumerary limb and foot duplication was noted at the end. Radiography and a(More)
