Brain Research: Neuroscientists decipher brain's noisy code ♦ ob strain linked to increased sick leave due to mental disorders ♦ Non-invasive brain stimulation technique could transform learning

Neuroscientists decipher brain's noisy code By comparing and analyzing the signals of individual neurons in animals undergoing behavioral tests, neuroscientists have deciphered the code that the brain uses to make the most of its inherently 'noisy' neuronal circuits
Magnetic pulses to the brain deliver long-lasting relief for tinnitus patients In the largest US clinical trial of its kind researchers found that transcranial magnetic stimulation significantly improved tinnitus symptoms for more than half of study participants.
Non-invasive brain stimulation technique could transform learning Researchers have discovered a new technique to enhance brain excitability that could improve physical performance in healthy individuals such as athletes and musicians.
Job strain linked to increased sick leave due to mental disorders Workers with high job demands and job strain are at increased risk of sick leave due to mental disorders, reports a study. Risk was also increased for workers with job strain, defined as high job demands with low control; and "iso-strain," defined as high demands and low control plus low levels of social support at work.
