Low intensity electrical stimulation to specific brain areas can help to improve short term verbal memory, researchers report.
A new study challenges current understanding of how visual attention is focused, as well as the roles of long and short term memory.
Electrically stimulating surviving nerves in the upper spinal cord following severe spinal cord injury improved motor control in upper limbs and allowed monkeys with limited arm function to regain lost movement.
University of Rochester researchers report low levels of electrical stimulation delivered to areas of the brain responsible for movement can instruct an appropriate response, replacing signals for sensory processing.
WUSTL researchers have developed a new, implantable and biodegradable device that delivers pulses of electrical activity to damaged peripheral nerves in rats, helping the animals to regrow nerves and improve nerve function.
A new prosthetic system allows amputees to feel the same intensity of pressure on their prosthetic hand as they can feel with their natural hand.
Electrical stimulation of the hippocampus activates the same receptor complexes as memory recall and learning, a new study reveals.
