A new study reveals the dorsolateral prefronal cortex integrates information about blameworthiness and helps us to determine an appropriate level of punishment.
A new study reports repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation appears to reduce cocaine use and cravings in those addicted to the drug.
According to researchers, retrieving memories of past events may not take as long as we previously thought. It may also be possible to interfere with the process.
Researchers use transcranial magnetic stimulation to help reduce key symptoms of bulimia.
Researchers report repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation can help to reverse some of the signs of Alzheimer's disease. So long as patients receive the treatments, cognitive decline appears to halt and, in some cases, cognitive abilities improve.
Using repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, researchers report they are able to strengthen or weaken the processing of negative emotions.
Researchers report intermittent theta burst stimulation can help to alleviate the symptoms of major depressive disorder. 49% of patients who received the treatment reported a significant decrease in symptoms, with 32% reporting remission of depression.
According to researchers, 40% of people with treatment resistant depression who received rTMS no longer had suicidal thoughts following treatment.
Applying repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) to the prefrontal cortex helps improve performance in working memory tasks for both young and older subjects. The findings could provide a potential new treatment option for those suffering from Alzheimer's disease and other memory-related problems.
