Non-essential amino acids influence the brain in a way that curbs appetite and promotes exercise.
SleepLoop, a newly designed mobile system, can help promote deep sleep through auditory brain stimulation. The device tracks when a person enters slow-wave brain activity, triggering an auditory signal that helps synchronize neurons and enhance the slow waves.
Ingested non-essential amino acids curb appetite and promote movement in mouse models.
Sensory signals transmitted from a prosthetic leg to the nervous system helps amputees perceive their prosthetic limb as part of their body. The new neurofeedback helps them perceive the new limb as significantly lighter.
A new study sheds light on how the brain changes as a result of chronic stress. Selective noradrenaline release rewires connectivity patterns between different brain regions. Activity in the amygdala and networks that process sensory stimuli increased.
