However, new research from a collaboration between the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience, Erasmus MC, and Champalimaud Center for the Unknown reveals that actually the nuclei of the cerebellum make a surprising contribution to this […]
Excessive drinking can be a medically harmless habit, but it can also indicate a rare hormone disorder.

World first: robot-assisted lung cancer surgery with augmented reality
Surgeons at Erasmus MC have achieved a world-first by successfully removing a lung tumor with the assistance of augmented reality during a robot-assisted surgery. This technique allows for the projection of virtual images of the tumor, blood vessels, and airways onto the lung during surgery. ‘Augmented reality enables us to navigate more safely and effectively.’
