Desynchronization of theta during thalamus stimulation in epilepsy.

Link – Desynchronization of temporal lobe theta-band activity during effective anterior thalamus deep brain stimulation in epilepsy. Abstract BACKGROUND: Bilateral cyclic high frequency deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the anterior nucleus of the thalamus (ANT) reduces the seizure count in a subset of patients with epilepsy. Detecting stimulation-induced alterations of pathological brain networks may help […]

Aging-related changes in motor response-related theta activity.

Link – Aging-related changes in motor response-related theta activity. Abstract It has been suggested that a distributed oscillatory system in the brain operating in the theta (3.5-7 Hz) frequency range plays a major role in coordinating motor actions. The major objective of the present study was to explore the effects of human aging on the neurodynamics […]

Theta tACS for Cognitive Remediation in Schizophrenia

Link – Online Theta Frequency Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation for Cognitive Remediation in Schizophrenia: A Case Report and Review of Literature. Abstract Transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS), a noninvasive brain stimulation technique that uses low-intensity alternating current, has been postulated to be a potential therapeutic option in treating the cognitive deficits in schizophrenia. Transcranial alternating […]

EEG theta oscillation during stimulus affects memory .

Link – Phase of electroencephalography theta oscillation during stimulus encoding affects accuracy of memory recall. Neuroreport. 2019 Feb 21;: Authors: Jalali A, Tata MS, Gruber AJ, Luczak A Abstract Oscillatory activity is a ubiquitous property of brain signals, and yet relatively few studies have investigated how the phase of such ongoing oscillations affects our cognition.
