Brain Stimul. 2018 May 04;: Authors: Du X, Rowland LM, Summerfelt A, Wijtenburg A, Chiappelli J, Wisner K, Kochunov P, Choa FS, Hong LE Abstract BACKGROUND: Animal studies suggest that synchronized electrical activities in the brain are regulated by the primary inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmitters gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glutamate, respectively. Identifying direct evidence that this same basic chemical-electrical neuroscience principle operates in the human brains is critical for translation of neuroscience to pathological research. OBJECTIVE/HYPOTHESIS: We hypothesize that the background neurochemical concentrations may affect the cortical excitability probed by ... read more
