Abstract

The brain generates natural oscillations from coordinated neuronal activity. Recent work exploring gamma oscillation entrainment raised the possibility that the phenomenon can be exploited to preserve neural function. In this issue of Neuron, Adaikkan et al. (2019)now show that chronic gamma entrainment using visual stimuli protects against several neurodegenerative phenotypes.
