Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) applied to the left prefrontal cortex can improve episodic memory performance by reducing the power of low frequency of brain waves during memory formation.
Non-invasive brain stimulation, such as rTMS, helps to reduce smoking frequency in nicotine-dependent people, a new study reports. Stimulating the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex with repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation significantly reduced smoking frequency.
Researchers apply DOT neuroimaging to patients receiving repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for depression to better understand the effectiveness of the brain stimulation for the treatment of the disorder.
Repetitive transcranial memory stimulation applied to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex modifies the negative effects of fear memories. The findings could have implications for the treatment of PTSD.
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.
According to researchers, 40% of people with treatment resistant depression who received rTMS no longer had suicidal thoughts following treatment.
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.
