Electrical Stimulation of Brain Boosts Birth of New Cells (image) Society for Neuroscience Share Print E-Mail Caption Mice who received deep brain stimulation (DBS) to a region in the brain called the entorhinal cortex showed an enhanced ability to learn how to navigate to a designated target. This image shows DBS mice (S) spent a greater amount of time (indicated in red) swimming near a submerged landing (dotted circle) compared with non-stimulated mice (NS).
