Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) researchers have discovered a promising biomarker for predicting and potentially preventing epileptic seizures in patients with brain injuries using EEG (electroencephalographic) recordings of theta brain waves.
NEUROMODULATION TECHNIQUES IN BEST POSSIBLE WAYS
EASING ALZHEIMER'S SYMPTOMS
Stimulation that is targeted at multiple brain regions or combined with other treatments such as cognitive training appear to produce more positive effects.
Therefore, although the field of brain stimulation is relatively immature, such techniques, especially rTMS, warrant further study for their therapeutic implications on patients with AD.
That is the conclusion from research Brain Stimulation in Alzheimer's Disease.
A new neurostimulator developed by engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, can listen to and stimulate electric current in the brain at the same time, potentially delivering fine-tuned treatments to patients with diseases like epilepsy and Parkinson's.
