Human Memory: Brain-State-Dependent Effects of Stimulation.

A new study shows that direct stimulation of memory-relevant brain areas can enhance memory performance, but only when stimulation is applied during brain states associated with poor memory outcome -...

Direct Electrical Stimulation of the Human Entorhinal Region and Hippocampus Impairs Memory.

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has shown promise for treating a range of brain disorders and neurological conditions. One recent study showed that DBS in the entorhinal region improved the accuracy of h...

Taking the brakes off the learning curve.

Motor learning is characterized by patterns of cerebello-striato-cortical activations shifting in time, yet the early dynamic and function of these activations remains unclear. Five groups of subjects...

The effects of captopril on lipopolysaccharide induced learning and memory impairments and the brain cytokine levels and oxidative damage in rats.

Renin-angiotensin system has a role in inflammation and also involves in learning and memory. In the present study, the effects of captopril on lipopolysaccharide (LPS) induced learning and memory imp...

Non-invasive brain stimulation targeting the right fusiform gyrus selectively increases working memory for faces.

The human extrastriate cortex contains a region critically involved in face detection and memory, the right fusiform gyrus. The present study evaluated whether transcranial direct current stimulation ...

Clinical Trials [5607 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Effect of Electrical Stimulation (DC Polarization) to the Brain on Memory

This study will test the effect of direct current (DC) brain polarization (the application of a very weak electrical current to the brain) on learning and memory. Earlier studies have show...

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) for Alzheimer's Disease

Background: Alzheimer disease (AD) is a debilitating brain disorder that affects over 4.75 million people in the US and Canada. People with AD have difficulty remembering general facts and...

Ventrointermediate Nucleus (VIM DBS) and Working Memory

This is part of a larger study for which participants have already completed memory and thinking tests. In this study, investigators are trying to learn how deep-brain stimulation affects ...

Performance Enhancement and Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation

A promising form of enhancing brain function non-invasively involves stimulating the brain using weak magnetic or electric currents. This method is becoming increasingly popular in both cl...

Learning Enhancement Through Neurostimulation in Autism

This study will examine whether brain stimulation paired with social skills learning can help teenage boys with autism learn how to make and keep friends. Brain stimulation can enhance lea...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Adjustment of BRAIN WAVES from two or more neuronal groups within or across a brain structure (e.g., cortical and limbic brain structures) to become uniform in EEG oscillation patterns in response to a stimulus. It is interpreted as a brain integration sign during many processes such as learning, memory, and perception and involves reciprocal neural connections.

Complex mental function having four distinct phases: (1) memorizing or learning, (2) retention, (3) recall, and (4) recognition. Clinically, it is usually subdivided into immediate, recent, and remote memory.

Stimulation of the brain, which is self-administered. The stimulation may result in negative or positive reinforcement.

Phenomenon that occurs when learning and memory abilities decrease naturally due to age.

Type of declarative memory, consisting of personal memory in contrast to general knowledge.

Alzheimer's Disease
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase  'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
