Research presented today at SfN’s annual meeting has detailed advances in brain stimulation technologies revealing safer, more targeted means of studying brain function and treating neurological disorders.
Listen to our latest NCTalks podcast with leading neurosurgeon, Ali Rezai, to hear more about his work, how neuromodulation can be harnessed to treat ‘alternative’ conditions, and where he hopes the field will progress in the next decade.
Could transcranial direct current stimulation offer relief from fatigue in multiple sclerosis sufferers?
Researchers have demonstrated significant reductions in levels of fatigue for multiple sclerosis patients in a randomized trial assessing transcranial direct current stimulation.
A new study has demonstrated the potential of excitatory intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS) for reducing spasticity in patients with spinal cord injury.
How effective are non-invasive brain stimulation techniques on the symptoms of psychiatric disorders? How far has the field come, and what’s next?
This article summarizes the results of brain stimulation in HD and gives a perspective on the therapeutic role for neuromodulatory brain stimulation methods.
Researchers hope to distinguish “hype from fact” in long-term cognitive enhancement.
Eric Wasserman discusses tells us more about his work, uses for noninvasive brain stimulation, and the potential for neuromodulation in the treatment of neurological disorders.
