a study from researchers led by the University of Utah controls the choices macaque monkeys made when presented with visual stimuli using non-invasive pulses of ultrasound waves on specific brain regions. The team states their findings indicate ultrasonic-based neuromodulation could provide a non-invasive, drug-free option to possibly study and treat decision-making disorders such as addiction, binge-eating, and compulsive behaviors.

Noninvasive, fully-reversible ultrasonic brain stimulation controls monkeys choices.

Seen as a potential breakthrough for many psychiatric illnesses, neuromodulation devices stimulate brain networks to regulate aberrant neural pathways, proffering a more natural and efficacious option for patients. Much excitement … Continue Reading Noninvasive, fully-reversible ultrasonic brain stimulation controls monkeys choices.
