Graphic: Network of nerve cells [21/11/2014] Oscillations of brain activity influence our attention and many other mental functions. Tatjana Tchumatchenko from the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research in Frankfurt and Claudia Clopath from Imperial College London have now developed a theoretical model that explains the origin of such oscillations in neural networks.Clock for brain waves - Read more

Pain therapy: light as a treatment component

[13/11/2014] The circadian rhythm dictates the rhythm of life on Earth. The human body also responds to changing lighting conditions. In the MEDICA TECH FORUM, Dr. Andreas Wojtysiak of OSRAM explains how lighting specialists and health professionals utilize the light’s influence on the central nervous system during the treatment of chronic pain patients.Pain therapy: light as a treatment component - Read more
