A new journal article was just published in The Lancet and it involves a collaborative efforts between Genome Explorations and researchers from The Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.
The article, published on August 16, 2022 and titled E.L., a modern-day Phineas Gage: Revisiting frontal lobe injury, proposes that modulation of low-frequency oscillatory activity dynamics are an important mechanism by which the the prefrontal cortex accommodates neurological injuries. This exciting finding potentially opens the door to targeted therapeutics for frontal lobe injuries.
Our study suggests that modulation of LFO dynamics is an important mechanism by which PFC accommodates neurological injuries, supporting the reports of Gage´s recovery, and represents an attractive target for therapeutic interventions.https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2667193X22001570
