Researchers report it's easier to control cognitive activity via transcranial magnetic stimulation in people with the Val/Val genetic variant of BDNF.
Using transcranial magnetic stimulation to suppress excitability in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex enhanced prosocial behaviors.
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.
A transcranial magnetic stimulation study revealed the motor cortex may play a role in translating foreign language words into one's native tongue.
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.
Applying transcranial magnetic stimulation to brain networks responsible for memory helped improve memories of complex and realistic events.
Obesity isn't just bad for physical health. Being overweight can have a significant impact on neurological health too. Researchers identified a link between obesity and reduced brain plasticity. Brain plasticity impairment could lead to cognitive and learning deficits in those suffering from obesity.
The application of synchronized transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) restored the ability to walk in a patient with spinal cord injury.
