Neosync is an early stage company developing a new treatment for major depression based on Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). The treatment–named NEST (Neosync EEG Synchronized TMS) and undergoing clinical trials–is based on the idea that depression patients tend to have overly rhythmic brain activity, [Read more…] about Neosync ranked #30 Holder of Pervasive Neurotech Intellectual Property*

“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 more…] about Non-invasive brain stimulation meets nanotechnology
Stimulating the Brain: From If to How (The Dana Foundation):
“Recent years have brought modern methods of brain stimulation into the mainstream of neurology and psychiatry. But their mechanism—how exactly deep brain stimulation (DBS) relieves Parkinson’s disease symptoms and how repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) improves depression, for example—remains obscure. Research [Read more…] about Good survey of brain stimulation methods, value and limitations
