Ultrasound Offers Focused Noninvasive Option for Neuropsychiatric Disorders

Scientists have developed a new technology to modulate neural activity using focused, low intensity ultrasound pulses. Transcranial focused ultrasound (tFUS) can target specific cells and neural circuits to activate or inhibit them. The novel technology can be applied to develop diagnostic techniques and innovative treatment options for a variety of neurological and psychiatric diseases such as chronic pain, depression, insomnia, epilepsy, and Parkinson’s disease.
