The strive for per­fec­tion has never been more ap­par­ent than when the Olympics are be­ing staged, as the pri­mal need to be faster, stronger and bet­ter dic­tates the en­tire lives of the com­pet­ing ath­letes. Stephen Hawk­ing and the Fu­ture Uni­verse team in­ves­ti­gates this phe­nom­e­non, and how lig­a­ment dam­age – which can af­fect any­one, not just ath­letes – can be treated with re­gen­er­a­tive medicine. And the body- part up­grad­ing doesn’t stop there. At Ox­ford Univer­sity they are test­ing the­o­ries in elec­tri­cal stim­u­la­tion to the brain that can ad­vance maths abil­ity. No more count­ing on fin­gers for these sub­jects.
