Researchers have developed a neurofeedback system which allows Parkinson's patients to voluntarily control beta wave activity in the subthalamic nucleus.
A new study reveals deep brain stimulation not only improves motor function, but can also increase survival rates for those with Parkinson's disease.
Targeting the nucleus accumbens by using deep brain stimulation could modify specific eating behaviors linked to weight changes and obesity, a new study suggests.
Stimulating the central lateral thalamus in monkeys under anesthesia was enough to wake the animals and elicit normal waking behaviors.
Using optogenetics, researchers obtain a better understanding of the neurochemical basis for alcohol addiction.
Neurosurgeons have developed a new way to perform deep brain stimulation surgeries. The new technique allows for more accurate placement of the electrodes in the brain and is likely to be safer for patients.
Researchers are developing new technologies that can stimulate and sense neurons in the human brain non-invasively.
Researchers have successfully recorded neural activity in the human striatum.
Researchers genetically modify individual neurons to become more sensitive to light stimuli.
