A technique called temporally interfering stimulation has been developed by MIT researchers to allow noninvasive stimulation of deep brain regions using electrodes on the scalp. The technique, which produces a low-frequency signal at the target region by crossing two high-frequency electrical signals, was tested in live mice and was found to enable activation of highly specific brain regions without causing neuronal damage.
