Transcranial focused ultrasound modulates the activity of primary somatosensory cortex in humans

Transcranial focused ultrasound modulates the activity of primary somatosensory cortex in humans Existing noninvasive neuromodulation methods have poor spatial resolution and may affect neural activity in both the targeted cortical region and unintended surrounding networks. The authors demonstrate that transcranial focused ultrasound, a noninvasive technique with better spatial specificity, can alter neural activity within spatially confined regions of primary somatosensory cortex and enhance somatosensory discrimination. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nature Neuroscience Springer Journals

Abstract

Existing noninvasive neuromodulation methods have poor spatial resolution and may affect neural activity in both the targeted cortical region and unintended surrounding networks. The authors demonstrate that transcranial focused ultrasound, a noninvasive technique with better spatial specificity, can alter neural activity within spatially confined regions of primary somatosensory cortex and enhance somatosensory discrimination.
