New neurostimulation technology works safely and non-invasively to modify brain activity. The findings may provide some foundational knowledge for the development of future technologies that could expedite cognitive processes.
Responsive neurostimulation can remodel neural networks, leaving the brain less susceptible to epileptic seizures.
A study of macaque monkeys reveals low-intensity ultrasound can both generate and suppress signalling in the brain and modulate normal function. The ultrasonic stimulation alters counterfactual thinking, allowing the ability to decide upon a better alternative in decision-making tasks.
Transcranial alternating current brain stimulation (tACS) significantly reduced symptoms in people diagnosed with major depressive disorder in a pilot clinical trial.
A new spinal stimulator shows promise in helping those with spinal cord injuries to regain some movement and strength in their hands.
A new electronic neural bypass device allows a paralyzed man to move his fingers and hand.
