Brain stimulation in Alzheimer disease
Recent studies have reported enhanced performance on specific cognitive tasks in patients with several types of neurological disease, after receiving non invasive brain stimulation (BS), i.e., repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) or transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) to specific cortical areas. In addition, persistent beneficial effects of off-line rTMS on sentence comprehension in Alzheimer disease […]
Increased cerebral metabolism after 1 year of deep brain stimulation in Alzheimer disease
Background: The importance of developing unique, neural circuitry-based treatments for the cognitive and neuropsychiatric symptoms of Alzheimer disease (AD) was the impetus for a phase I study of deep brain stimulation (DBS) in patients with AD that targeted the fornix.; Objective: To test the hypotheses that DBS would increase cerebral glucose metabolism in cortical and […]
Non-invasive brain stimulation improves object-location learning in the elderly
Remembering the location of objects, an integral part of everyday life, is known to decline with advancing age and early in the course of neurodegenerative dementia. Here, we aimed to test if object-location learning and its retention could be modified by noninvasive brain stimulation. In a group of 20 elderly (mean age 62.1 years) right-handed […]
Improved language performance in Alzheimer disease following brain stimulation
Objectives: Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has been proposed as a possible treatment for the cognitive deficits associated with Alzheimer disease (AD). The aim of this study was to assess the long-term effects, on cognitive performance, of rTMS applied to the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) in AD patients.; Methods: Ten AD patients were randomly […]
