A new computer model shows the beneficial effects of deep brain stimulation arise from how it interrupts the cycle promoting runway beta in a circuit loop between the subthalamic nucleus and striatum.
Researchers report the optimal target for brain stimulation depends on the type of dystonia being treated.
Combining deep-brain stimulation with intracranial EEG, researchers achieved an individualized understanding of specific brain networks that contributed to an individual's depression symptoms and identified stimulation patterns best suited to each patient for symptom relief.
A new, improved DBS technique that targets specific subpopulations of neurons in the globus pallidus with short bursts of stimulation shows promising results as a treatment for Parkinson's disease.
A modified deep brain stimulation devise that delivers on-demand stimulation when it recognizes changes in brain patterns provides immediate and long-term relief for depression sufferers.
Researchers report self-perception does not diminish nor does an individual's personality change as a result of closed-loop brain stimulation brain implants for the treatment of epilepsy.
Researchers have successfully recorded brain signatures of movement symptoms and deep brain stimulation of Parkinson's patients in real time. The findings could lay the groundwork for personalize therapies for those with the neurodegenerative disease.
Researchers have succeeded in wirelessly recording both deep and surface human brain activity for an extended period of time while the patient was in their home environment.
Spinal cord stimulation significantly decreased pain and reduced motor symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease, both as a singular therapy and for those who deep brain stimulation proved ineffective.
