MIT Researchers Devel­op Wire­less, Non­in­va­sive Deep Brain Stim­u­la­tion Approach (Med Device online):

Sci­en­tists have intro­duced a nov­el method of admin­is­ter­ing brain stim­u­la­tion that requires no implants or exter­nal con­nec­tions. By inject­ing mag­net­ic nanopar­ti­cles into the brain, researchers have found that they can manip­u­late neu­rons by apply­ing exter­nal mag­net­ic fields Read the rest of this entry »
