Measuring happiness with nanotechnology?

Abstract:
Yoshinobu Baba, a professor of chemistry at Nagoya University and a director for nanobiotechnology research at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Japan, tells Celia Clarke over at Chemical Biology how nanotechnology could measure our health and happiness.

What's the next step for nanobiotechnology?

Nanobiotechnology could be used as a measure of happiness, stress levels and health. We can measure the stages of cancer or diabetes, since genomic research tells us which genes are related to which diseases. But we need to analyse proteomics and glycomics in more detail. The next stage is to measure the function of the brain, looking at happiness and stress.
