  • This technique is not yet ready for use in human patients, but studies such as this one could help researchers identify brain activity patterns that signal the onset of compulsive behavior, allowing them to more precisely time the delivery of deep brain stimulation. (eurekalert.org)
  • activity
  • The researchers suggest that this cure resulted from signals sent from the cortical neurons to a very small group of inhibitory neurons in the striatum, which silence the activity of neighboring striatal cells and cut off the compulsive behavior. (eurekalert.org)
  • appears
  • Through the activation of this pathway, we could elicit behavior inhibition, which appears to be dysfunctional in our animals," Burguière says. (eurekalert.org)
