Penn Researchers’ Model Optimizes Brain Stimulation Therapies, Improving Memory in Tests

A complicated diagram from the researcher’s paper that shows how electrical stimulation effects networks of brain regions.
The researchers’ model involves mapping the connections between different regions of an individual’s brain while they performed a basic memory task, then using that data to predict how electrical stimulation in one region would affect activity throughout the network. Individuals’ improved performance on the same memory task after stimulation suggests the model could eventually be generalized toward a variety of stimulation therapies.
