Duke University New technique could show transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) treating depression and other disorders Engineers and neuroscientists at Duke University have developed a method to measure the response of an individual neuron to transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the brain. The advance will help researchers understand the underlying physiological effects of TMS -- a procedure used to treat psychiatric disorders -- and optimize its use as a therapeutic treatment....

A mechanism in the brain which controls tics in children with Tourette Syndrome (TS) has been discovered by scientists at The University of Nottingham. The study, which has been published in the British Psychological Society’s Journal of Neuropsychology, could herald new non-drug therapies to help young people with TS overcome the repetitive physical movements and vocal sounds which characterise their condition. The work was funded with a £150,000 grant from the James Tudor...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Oxford University researchers in a new study found that a weak electrical signal can help boost a person's mathematic skills over a period few months. The team wrote in the journal Cell Biology that their technique involves placing electrodes on the scalp of the head and applying random electrical noise to stimulate the part of the brain known to be involved in doing math. The technique, known as transcranial random noise...
