Our brain is made up of billions of tiny cells called neurons and they communicate with each other by electrical signals to help our body function. But what happens when there is an imbalance in these signals? Medical conditions such as depression and a decline in mental ability may happen, and this is where neuromodulation comes in to rebalance the brain activity and improve functions.
