Brain implants last longer if they’re smaller: Here’s how

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have recently suggested that if electrodes implanted in the brain were smaller, the devices could last much longer. Diseases like Parkinson’s disease can be treated with electrical stimulations from electrodes that have been implanted in the brain. Implanted electrodes, however, can cause scarring which can make the electrodes less effective

Non-invasive brain stimulation proven to improve memory

Scientists at Northwestern University have successfully used a non-invasive brain stimulation for the first time that can be used like a scalpel to make specific improvements in precise memory. Precise memory, for example, is used to recall specific colors, shapes and locations of buildings, versus just knowing the name of the town that the building is
