Electrical Deep-Brain Stimulation Enhances Memory in Small Study
An electrical current sent deep into the brain improves memory, according to a study that suggests a novel approach to treating Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Seven volunteers with epilepsy who had electrodes implanted in their brains to detect the source of their seizures participated in the research to see if deep-brain stimulation improved their recall. The results published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that information they learned while the stimulation occurred was easier to remember and use.
