Non-invasive electrical stimulation alters blood flow in brain tumors

After a single session of transcranial electrical stimulation (tES), researchers noted a significant reduction in blood flow to brain tumors. However, there were no alterations in blood flow or activity in the rest of the brain. The technique may be helpful in the treatment of brain cancers such as glioblastoma.... Read More...

Zapping Memories: Electrostimulation Restores Working Memory of 70 Year Olds’ to That of 20 Year Olds’

Non-invasive electrostimulation restores working memory in 70-year-olds, allowing for comparable to cognitive abilities to those of 20-year-olds. The technology increases neural synchronization patterns and information flow between frontotemporal regions of the brain. This results in rapid improvements of working memory in older people, which lasted for more than 50 minutes post stimulation. The findings offer new hope to those suffering age-related memory impairments. ... Read More...
