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.
Targeting the nucleus accumbens by using deep brain stimulation could modify specific eating behaviors linked to weight changes and obesity, a new study suggests.
Deep brain stimulation to the frontal lobe may help to improve cognitive, behavioral and functional difficulties in those with Alzheimer's disease, a new study reports.
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.
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.
Stimulating specific regions of the brain can help to improve memory and word recall in those with severe epilepsy, a new Nature Communications study reports.
