Deep brain stimulation therapy blocks or modulates electrical signals in the brain to improve symptoms in patients suffering from movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, essential tremor and dystonia, but a new study suggests that several factors may cause electrical current to vary over time.
Non-invasive brain stimulation may help stroke survivors recover speech and language function.
What if experts could dig into the brain, like archaeologists, and uncover the history of past experiences?

Vital to our overall health, practicing good sleep strategies and techniques prove to be crucial in the attempt to revitalize your body and mind through invigorating sleep patterns.
Neuroscientists may soon be modern-day harpooners, snaring individual brain-cell signals instead of whales with tiny spears made of carbon nanotubes.
For years we have known about the differences between city slickers and country bumpkins, but a new study from the Max Planck Institute in Germany has shown that the different environments can have different effects on an organism’s natural biological rhythms.
Slowdowns in the transport and delivery of nutrients, proteins and signaling molecules within nerve cells may contribute to the development of the neurodegenerative disorder ALS.
Electrooculography, sometimes shortened to EOG, is the tracing of electricity used for operation of the retina in different phases, specifically the resting potential. The results are recorded on an electrooculogram. These are interpreted for opthalmological diagnosis and in recording eye movements. Eye movement measurements: Usually, pairs of electrodes are placed either above and below the eye or to the left and right of the eye. If the eye is moved from the center position towards one...
