Neuromodulation is the true term for alterations in the brain triggered by a neurostimulator prosthetic. The neurostimulator delivers electrical pulses of a set pattern depending on purpose and implantation area, into the brain. This alters or modulates the current flow of the neurons around the prosthetic, altering the data signals and changing circuits.

In effect, altering the data in the brain itself.

A new tack in neuroprosthetic interfaces is being born out of pulses of light rather than electricity. Termed 'optogenetic neuromodulation, the technique is being pioneered in the hope that it will enable a far greater level of accuracy and single-cell stimulation than is possible with electrode interfaces.
