Study identifies a neural pathway associated with error monitoring and attention function in some psychiatric disorders such as ADHD, ASD, and schizophrenia. Researchers say the pathway could be modulated with the help of transcranial magnetic stimulation or transcranial direct current stimulation.
The strength of a person's mental imagery is associated with excitability in the prefrontal cortex and visual cortex. Highly excitable neurons in the visual cortex may reduce a person's ability to imagine mental images. The findings shed light on how aphantasia, a condition where a person can not imaging mental images, may occur.
Long contractions of muscles in one hand increase involuntary reactions in the other. Findings shed new light on mirror activity and may help with better understanding the pathology of mirror movements in neurological disorders.
Using non-invasive transcranial direct current stimulation to target the left rostrolateral prefrontal cortex improves memory retrieval.
Transcranial alternating current brain stimulation (tACS) significantly reduced symptoms in people diagnosed with major depressive disorder in a pilot clinical trial.
A new study reveals the desire to carry our physical or sexual assault can be curbed with the help of tDCS. The brain stimulation technique also increases the perception in potential offenders that such violence is morally wrong.
Contrary to existing thought, researchers report transcranial direct current stimulation is not as effective at improving memory in older people as it is in younger adults.
A new study reveals a non-invasive method of brain stimulation may help to reduce fatigue in Multiple Sclerosis patients.
