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.
Older adults who sleep less than 4.5 hours, or more than 6.5 hours per night and who experience sleep disruptions are at greater risk of cognitive decline, researchers report.
Theta activity in the brain is different following mistakes or challenging tasks in those with common mental health disorders including anxiety, ADHD, and OCD compared to those with no history of the disorders.
A newly developed two-minute EEG test effectively picks up on early memory impairments associated with Alzheimer's disease.
A new statistical model lays groundwork for understanding how ketamine induces an anesthetic response, steps to monitor unconscious patients, and provides new information about brain activity while unconscious.
Reductions in reaction time, memory, and other neuropsychological problems persist for at least seven days following a ten-day period of insufficient sleep.
The stronger the connection between the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and temporal-parietal junction, the less likely people are to punish others for selfish deeds.
A new brain-machine interface allows wearers to wirelessly control a wheelchair or robotic arm by simply imagining an action. The neuroprosthesis could help improve the quality of life for those with disabilities.
A new study warns of potential social, ethical, and legal consequences of brain-machine interfaces and other technologies that interact with the human brain.
