Whole-body vibration (WBV) therapy may be a way in which inflammation associated with diabetes can be controlled. WBV alters the microbiome, increasing levels of a bacterium that creates short-chain fatty acids, which help the body to better use glucose.
Researchers report the motor cortex is only essential for motor control when movements are executed in response to unexpected sensory feedback.
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.
Following targeted motor and sensory reinnervation, a procedure that reroutes residual limb nerves to intact muscles and skin in amputees, the brain remaps both motor and sensory pathways. Additionally, researchers note, TMSR may help counteract poorly adapted cortical plasticity following amputation.
Study revels M1 ganglion cell photoreceptors can tune into different ranges of light intensity.
A new study reveals multiple parts of the brain are associated with memory processing. Findings could help develop new strategies to treat those with brain injuries.
Applying transcranial direct current stimulation to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex can help to improve cognitive control and may be a beneficial treatment for those with autism, schizophrenia and ADHD, a new study reports.
Researchers report repetitive movements in slow learning stages can alter the primary motor cortex and help people retain new motor skills.
Researchers identify two gene clusters in the brain linked to human intelligence.
Researchers discover three specific drugs affect three different kinds of neurotransmitter receptors which all appear to play roles in Fragile X.
