Brain Research:Type of electromagnetic field therapy improves survival for patients with brain tumor ♦ Reduce epileptic seizures following traumatic brain injury

Type of electromagnetic field therapy improves survival for patients with brain tumor Early research indicates that the use of tumor-treating fields, a type of electromagnetic field therapy, along with chemotherapy in patients with a brain tumor who had completed standard chemoradiation resulted in prolonged progression-free and overall survival.
Brain’s GPS depends on visual landmarks to triangulate location Researchers have found that space-mapping neurons -- the GPS system in the brain -- have a strong dependence on what is being looked at when triangulating location, a finding that resolves a neurological mystery that has vexed scientists for more than four decades.
Using network science to help pinpoint source of seizures The ability to reliably pinpoint the anatomical source of epileptic seizures, different for each patient, remains elusive. New research looks at networks of electrical activity in the brain just prior to the onset of a seizure by studying the recordings of 88 seizures from 22 patients.
Scientists identify mechanisms to reduce epileptic seizures following TBI Halting production of new neurons in the brain following traumatic brain injury can help reduce resulting epileptic seizures, cognitive decline, and impaired memory
