Recent Advancements and Breakthroughs in Neuroscience
The advancements and breakthroughs in neuroscience helps in understanding the brain well and also in effective treatments and diagnoses. Neuromodulation methods like Optogenetics helps in controlling the living cells especially neurons. Optogenetics is a combination of genetics and optics to control the events in cells which show light responses. Wireless EEG (electroencephalogram) sensor technology is rapidly changing the neuroexamination approach. EEG headsets have EEG sensors that measure the brain’s electrical activity, or brainwaves. Traditional EEG testing was invasive and complex. It typically involved the use of silver needles and electrode attachments to the scalp and had to be done in hospitals or research settings. Today, wireless EEG headsets allow readings to be done completely non-invasively. They are simple and comfortable to wear and are powered by a single AAA battery. Gene therapies for treating various neurological disorders seems to be promising.
