Researchers report in a new PNAS study that direct stimulation of the amygdala can enhance memory of images a day later, if the stimulation is applied immediately after the images are viewed.
Researchers report low frequency deep brain stimulation can help to improve cognitive function in people with Parkinson's disease.
Whether we are consciously aware of seeing a familiar face and object or not, our brains actively notice. A new study sheds light on the nature of conscious perception.
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.
