New brain stimulation technique shows promise for treating brain disorders

This figure summarizes the outcomes following ultrasound stimulation. Low-intensity brainwave-like pattern ultrasound stimulation sequentially stimulates TRPA1 in astrocytes, leading to BEST1-dependent neurotransmitter secretion. This, in turn, stimulates adjacent neurons, inducing neural plasticity in the neurons. This process briefly describes how changes in cognitive functions…

Are stressed-out brain cells the root cause of neurodegenerative disease?

Many neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, are characterized by the accumulation of protein clumps, or aggregates, in the brain, which has led scientists to assume that the protein tangles kill brain cells. The search for treatments that break up and remove…

How the “Little Brain” Fuels Motivation and Addiction

How the "Little Brain" Fuels Motivation and Addiction

Key points First-of-its-kind research shows how the cerebellum modulates dopamine release within the basal ganglia. Motivation and addiction are both fueled by dopamine activation in the basal ganglia’s substantia nigra. Too little dopamine causes Parkinson’s disease. Stimulating the cerebellum may be a new treatment…
