Deep brain stimulation is being studied as a treatment for any number of neurological and psychological conditions. But what is it, exactly?
A new wireless brain-computer interface was able to record and transmit brain signals as effectively as the “gold standard” wired systems.
Calmer is a therapeutic bed for incubators that simulates a caregiver’s breathing and heartbeat to relieve stress in newborns.
Functional ultrasound tech can be used to map the brain activity of monkeys, suggesting it might be useful for future brain-machine interfaces.
After death, gene expression increases in the brain’s glial cells — and those “zombie” cells could affect how we study neurological disorders.
Researchers have created a “tiny machine” to better study brain organoids, clumps of stem cells that simulate the brain.
Saliva was used to diagnose concussions with 94% accuracy, suggesting that an objective concussion test may finally be within reach.
The brain is a difficult place to work. How can brain mapping help open the black box between your ears?
A new brain implant contains wireless charging tech that could eliminate the need for surgeries to remove and replace drained batteries.
Alzheimer’s has proved difficult to treat. But solving the mystery of this ultra-rare frontotemporal dementia may unlock new understanding.
A new gene therapy was able to repair a damaged optic nerve in mice, suggesting it might be useful for treating glaucoma in people.
For the first time, a blood test for Alzheimer’s disease has received approval to be used in doctors’ offices in the U.S.
In a new breakthrough, scientists use optogenetics to manipulate brain cells in mice without surgery or brain implants.
Not too long ago, autism gene therapy was a pipe dream. Now, armed with specific targets and new methods, a small wave of gene therapies is gathering.
Dopamine and serotonin are crucial brain chemicals. A new study that measured them simultaneously in active brains suggests they may do more than we think.
To figure out how people might benefit from brain training apps, researchers are looking for 30,000 volunteers willing to play brain games science.
A first-of-its-kind neural interface called the Stentrode sits in a blood vessel in the brain, picking up signals it can wirelessly transmit to a computer.
