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...

How Does Solid Stress From Brain Tumors Cause Neuron Loss and Neurological Dysfunction?

A new study reveals how the physical force exerted by the solid components of brain tumors impacts surrounding tissue, resulting in apoptosis and neurological dysfunction. Researchers reports the drug lithium, commonly prescribed for bipolar disorder, can help reverse some of the damage caused by the solid stress of the tumor.... Read More...
