A new study reports dTMS can help to reduce fatigue symptoms in those with multiple sclerosis.
Stimulating the posterior cingulate cortex increased hippocampal gamma-band power and strengthened the connections between the two brain regions. Using deep brain stimulation could help to treat memory disorders and cognitive impairment.
Electrical stimulation of the hippocampus activates the same receptor complexes as memory recall and learning, a new study reveals.
Researchers implanted pacemaker electrodes into the medial forebrain bundle of patients suffering from major depression and performed deep brain stimulation. In a matter of days, in six out of seven patients, symptoms such as anxiety, despondence, listlessness and joylessness had improved considerably.
Researchers use optogenetic based deep brain stimulation to help treat motor dysfunction in animal models of Parkinson's disease. The new technique provides insights into why DBS works and ways in which it can be improved on a patient-by-patient basis.
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.
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.
Human reinforcement learning was modified by deep brain stimulation of substantia nigra dopamine containing neurons.
Using lesion network mapping, researchers identified brain circuits associated with addiction remission. The findings provide a new target for the development of treatments for addiction.
