Electrically stimulating the nucleus basalis of Meynert elevated acetylcholine levels and helped improve working memory, a new study reports.
Researchers have developed a new, minimally invasive brain stimulation technique that can induce a range of bodily movements. The technique, magneto-thermal stimulation, can be used to target highly specific brain regions and could help researchers to advance brain mapping studies.
Researchers combine movement sensing electrodes on top of the brain with deep brain stimulating electrodes to help treat essential tremor, the world's most prevalent movement disorder.
Deep brain stimulation helps reduce movement tics and verbal outbursts in people suffering from Tourette, researchers report.
Deep brain stimulation may elevate, and even eliminate symptoms of depression in patients for whom traditional treatments have failed, a new study reports.
A small study suggests deep brain stimulation may be beneficial for improving mood and reducing anxiety while helping to increase weight in those with anorexia.
According to researchers, deep brain stimulation reduces the desire to use heroin and rat models of addiction.
