  • The neuromodulatory and hormonal effects of transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation as evidenced by salivary alpha amylase, salivary cortisol, pupil diameter, and the P3 event-related potential
    Transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation (tVNS) is a new, non-invasive technique being investigated as an intervention for a variety of clinical disorders, including epilepsy and depression. It is thought to exert its therapeutic effect by increasing central norepinephrine (NE) activity, but the evidence supporting this notion is limited. ... read more

  • Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation over the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex enhances reflective judgment & decision-making
    Accounts of cognitive processes in judgment and decision-making are frequently based on a dual-process framework, which reflects two qualitatively different types of processing: intuitive (Type 1) and analytical (Type 2) processes. ... read more

  • Inferior thalamic peduncle deep brain stimulation for treatment-refractory obsessive-compulsive disorder: A phase 1 pilot trial
    Several different surgical procedures targeting the limbic circuit have been utilized for severe, treatment resistant obsessive-compulsive disorder; however, there has only been limited exploration of the inferior thalamic peduncle (ITP). The aim of this study was to determine the safety and initial efficacy of ITP deep brain stimulation (DBS) in patients with severe obsessive-compulsive disorder. ... read more

  • A comment on postural stability improvement in older adults with high fall risk after anodal tDCS on primary motor cortex versus cerebellar stimulation
    The paper by Yosephi et al. titled Multiple-session anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) enhances the effects of postural training on balance and postural stability in older adults with high fall risk: primary motor cortex versus cerebellar stimulation generates much interest [1]. Their findings revealed positive treatment effects of both anodal tDCS protocols coupled with postural training on postural stability as compared to sham conditions. Further, the improvements in postural control were greater in the bilateral cerebellar anodal tDCS protocol than the unilateral anodal tDCS on the M1 of dominant hemisphere protocol. ... read more

  • Durability of antidepressant response to repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation: Systematic review and meta-analysis
    The therapeutic options for treatment-resistant depression (TRD) encompass a range of neuromodulatory techniques, including repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS). While rTMS is safe and has documented short-term efficacy, durability of antidepressant effects is poorly established. ... read more

  • Intermittent theta burst stimulation induced seizure in a child with schizophrenia: A case report
    Seizure as an adverse effect to repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has been reported very infrequently, especially in children [1]. We report a case of a 15 year old girl who had a seizure following theta burst stimulation (TBS). She was hospitalized for inpatient care at a tertiary care mental hospital with chief complaints of hearing voices which others couldn't hear with muttering and smiling to self, poor personal hygiene and deterioration in her school performance for 2 years. ... read more

  • Long-term results after deep brain stimulation of nucleus accumbens and the anterior limb of the internal capsule for preventing heroin relapse: An open-label pilot study
    Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is currently used to treat addiction, with the nucleus accumbens (NAc) as one promising target. The anterior limb of the internal capsule (ALIC) is also a potential target, as it carries fiber tracts connecting the mesocorticolimbic circuits that are crucially involved in several psychiatric disorders, including addiction. Stimulating the NAc and ALIC simultaneously may have a synergistic effect against addiction. ... read more

  • Neurostimulation in tardive dystonia/dyskinesia: A delayed start, sham stimulation-controlled randomized trial
    Growing evidence suggests that pallidal deep brain stimulation represents a potential new therapeutic avenue in tardive dystonia/dyskinesia, but controlled and blinded randomized studies (RCT) are missing. The present RCT compares dystonia/dyskinesia severity of pallidal neurostimulation in patients with tardive dystonia using a delayed-start design paradigm. ... read more
