Researchers genetically modify individual neurons to become more sensitive to light stimuli.
Long term outcome data of patients with treatment-resistant depression found subcallosal cingulate deep brain stimulation (SCC DBS) was both effective at relieving symptoms and safe.
Researchers have developed a new deep brain stimulation device that is able to use feedback from the brain to fine tune its signal. The device could help those with Parkinson's disease.
Stimulating the thalamus and other areas of the brain stem connected with wakefulness can help bring rats back to consciousness after a seizure, new research reports.
A new study reports how well people with depression respond to placebos may determine how well they will respond to antidepressant medications.
By electrically stimulating the severed part of the spinal cord, researchers were able to make a completely paralyzed rat walk over obstacles.
Researchers report EEG technology has the ability to study activity of areas deep inside the brain, such as the thalamus and nucleus accumbens. The findings will help shed new light on disorders that affect these brain regions, such as Parkinson's disease and OCD.
