A new study aims to assess the usefulness of a new technology that could speed up and enhance the clearing of metabolic waste via the glymphatic system as a person sleeps.
Studying rats in a virtual reality maze, researchers discover certain hippocampal neurons play a vital role in a specific mechanism of navigation.
Researchers created a form of artificial vision for a blind woman with the aid of a brain implant position in the visual cortex. The results pave the way for the creation of visual brain prosthetics to help the blind to regain sight.
A new, improved DBS technique that targets specific subpopulations of neurons in the globus pallidus with short bursts of stimulation shows promising results as a treatment for Parkinson's disease.
RAGE-Control, a video game system that utilizes biofeedback to regulate heart rate, reduces stress, oppositional behavior, and aggression by training children to stay calm during stressful and frustrating situations.
A modified deep brain stimulation devise that delivers on-demand stimulation when it recognizes changes in brain patterns provides immediate and long-term relief for depression sufferers.
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.
Reduced activity in the prefrontal cortex during virtual reality creative self-expression tasks indicates an enhanced relaxation response.
Researchers report self-perception does not diminish nor does an individual's personality change as a result of closed-loop brain stimulation brain implants for the treatment of epilepsy.
