Stimulation of brain’s reward system reduces cancer tumours

Stimulation of brain’s reward system reduces cancer tumours
Researchers at the Technion have successfully shrunk cancerous tumours in mice by manipulating the brain’s reward system. The explanation: the intervention caused the nervous system to stimulate the immune system. Artificially activating the brain’s reward system has led to a dramatic reduction in the size of cancerous tumours in mice. This is the conclusion of a study conducted at the Technion and published in the journal Nature Communications.
