(University of Calgary) UCalgary researchers have completed a study investigating the effects of two different methods of deep brain stimulation (DBS), short pulse and long pulse, for treatment-resistant depression. The findings showed that both methods of stimulation were equally safe and effective in reducing depressive symptoms. Some study participants have experienced a massive positive change in their lives.

Recently, lanthanide-doped upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) have been developed as a new class of optical actuators and labels to allow for the use of near-infrared light (NIR) to optogenetically stimulate and image neurons nestled in deep brain regions. Besides the high penetration depth of NIR excitation, UCNPs show advantages in neuronal imaging ...

Abbott Laboratories is adding some extra firepower to its neuromodulation offerings. The company said last week that its Infinity Deep Brain Stimulation [DBS] device received a nod from FDA to treat Parkinson’s disease symptoms. The newly approved indication specifically calls for the Infinity DBS to target an area of the brain called the globus pallidus (GPi). Abbott said the GPi plays an integral role in the motor function and can be targeted with DBS to improve Parkinson’s disease symptoms not adequately controlled by medication. Abbott said with this approval, the Infinity DBS is now...

Abstract Deep brain stimulation is used to alleviate symptoms of neurological and psychiatric disorders including Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, and obsessive-compulsive-disorder. Electrically stimulating limbic structures has been of great interest, and in particular, the region of the fornix. We conducted a systematic search for studies that reported clinical and preclinical outcomes of deep brain stimulation within the fornix up to July 2019. We identified 13 studies (7 clinical, 6 preclinical) that examined the effects of fornix stimulation in Alzheimer's disease (n = 9), traumatic brain injury (...
