Noninvasive Neuromodulation Goes Deep

Cell. 2017 Jun 1;169(6):977-978. doi: 10.1016/j.cell.2017.05.017.


Modulating deep regions of the brain with noninvasive technology has challenged researchers for decades. In a new study, Grossman et al. leverage the emergence of a slowly oscillating "beat" from intersecting high-frequency electric fields to stimulate deep brain regions, opening a frontier in the biophysics and technology of brain stimulation.
