Researchers have determined the electrode placement during deep brain stimulation needs to be tailored to the patient as the locations of functional brain networks vary on an individual basis.
Researchers have developed a ‘pacemaker for the brain’, which can monitor and stimulate electric currents, potentially leading to novel treatments in individuals with neurological diseases.
Signature patterns of electrical activity in the brain may predict impulsive behaviors, suggesting deep brain stimulation could hold potential as a treatment for several mental disorders.
This review explores the limitations of the present technology and current challenges of SCS before reviewing some of the most important recent advances.
Research suggests increasing synaptic activity could alleviate SMA symptoms: motor function of mice was improved when treated with a glutamate receptor stimulant.
The future of neuromodulation: an interview with Timothy Deer, President of the International Neuromodulation Society
Dr Deer discusses his career highlights, most memorable patient cases, and looks ahead at future challenges and trends in the field of neuromodulation.
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.
A patient with discomplete spinal injuries has regained limited movement following electrical stimulation treatment and undergoing intensive physical therapy.
The aim of this editorial from the journal Pain Management is to analyze the current status of evidence for TENS for pain relief.
A new study has indicated that a wireless patch on the arm that provides electrical stimulation could be as effective in reducing migraine pain as conventional drugs.
