Neuro Nook offers an occasional roundup of developments in neurology and neuroscience.
According to recent studies, deep brain stimulation (DBS) may benefit patients with tinnitus and tumor cells could drive brain cancer progression by hijacking neurons. Furthermore, new guidelines suggest immunizations are safe for patients who have multiple sclerosis.
Neuromodulation using DBS showed promise in treating patients with refractory tinnitus, according to a small phase 1 trial published recently in the Journal of Neurosurgery.
