Help with paper-Nanotechnology&Geriatrics

I'm writing a paper on "Potential Benefits of Nanotechnology for the Geriatric Patient" and right now I'm in the phase where I am gathering the papers I'm going to read and cite. Anyone who knows some interesting nanotech articles as it pertains to healthcare, please post them here. I am looking for real world as well as potential benefits of the research, so pure theory is okay. Post 'em up.

Thanks.

Reason magazine has a cover story about nanotechnology and how people have responded to it.
You can probably find some info there about the people's thoughts on nanotech in general.

Check out Neal Stephenson's "The Diamond Age" for some good nanotech daydreaming.

Have you been using Medline/CINAHL to find some articles? This is a really interesting topic, our library happens to have a bunch of materials on new technology and caring for the elderly (we teach mostly nursing students) I'm going to do a little digging for you and see what I can come up with.

Thanks to everybody especially eboo who was 10 times more help than I really expected to get on such an arcane topic. Time to do this, Brutus.
