Transcranial ultrasound stimulation (TUS) is an emerging technique that can noninvasively excite or inhibit neural activity in targeted brain regions by delivery of pulsed ultrasonic waves. TUS is therefore a valuable tool to modulate specific neuronal pathways or nuclei in both the basic and clinical neurosciences, and may have therapeutic potential in neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's Disease, epilepsy, and stroke. Our latest guest-edited collection brings together recent research published in BMC Neuroscience concerning technological advances, potential applications, and therapeutic effects, of transcranial ultrasound stimulation.
Lipopolysaccharide worsens the prognosis of experimental cerebral ischemia via interferon gamma-induced protein 10 recruit in the acute stage
Infection is an important clinical complication facing stroke-patients and triples the risk of death within 30 days post-stroke via mechanisms which are poorly understood.
