  • The efficacy and safety of transcutaneous auricular vagus nerve stimulation in patients with mild cognitive impairment: A double blinded randomized clinical trial
    There are 9.9 million new cases of dementia in the world every year. Short-term conversion rate from mild cognitive impairment (MCI) to dementia is between 20% and 40%, but long-term in 5–10 years ranges from 60% to 100%. It is particularly important to prevent or prolong the development of MCI into dementia. Both auriculotherapy and vagus nerve stimulation are effective on improving cognitive functions. However, there is no double blinded randomized clinical trial to support the effectiveness of transcutaneous electrical stimulation of auricular acupuncture points in patients with MCI. ... read more

  • Corrigendum to “Structural and functional correlates of deep brain stimulation-induced apathy in Parkinson’s disease”
    The authors apologize for an error in the published version of the above article. In the visualization of deep brain stimulation contact point positions (Figure 1 and Supplementary Figure E), left and right were swapped. As a result, we wrongly stated that left-sided stimulation positions were correlated with the occurrence of post-operative apathy. Instead, this statement should have been made regarding right-sided stimulation positions. Since we did not elaborate on the lateralization of our results, the error did not affect the main conclusions of the article. ... read more

  • Restoration of functional network state towards more physiological condition as the correlate of clinical effects of pallidal deep brain stimulation in dystonia
    Deep brain stimulation of the internal globus pallidus (GPi DBS) is an invasive therapeutic modality intended to retune abnormal central nervous system patterns and relieve the patient of dystonic or other motor symptoms. ... read more

  • Vagus nerve stimulation increases stomach-brain coupling via a vagal afferent pathway
    Maintaining energy homeostasis is vital and supported by vagal signaling between digestive organs and the brain. Previous research has established a gastric network in the brain that is phase synchronized with the rhythm of the stomach, but tools to perturb its function were lacking. ... read more

  • Local field potentials in patients with obsessive compulsive disorder: Acute effects of deep brain stimulation in the bed nucleus stria terminalis after symptom provocation
    Obsessive-compulsive disorder is treatable with invasive neuromodulation. It is essential to measure the immediate effect of stimulation. We report for the first-time local field potentials directly from the bed nucleus during symptom provocation and electrical stimulation. ... read more

  • Effects of stimulus pulse rate on somatosensory adaptation in the human cortex
    Intracortical microstimulation (ICMS) of the somatosensory cortex can restore sensation to people with neurological diseases. However, many aspects of ICMS are poorly understood, including the effect of stimulation on percept intensity over time. ... read more
