The 'pacemaker' implanted in the brain

2 posts in this topic

A ‘pacemaker’ has been implanted in to the brain of an Alzheimer's patient in a bid to reduce memory loss.

The device, which uses deep brain stimulation, has already been used in thousands of people with Parkinson’s disease as possible means of boosting memory and reversing cognitive decline.

Now the first patient in the US has undergone the delicate surgery to try and halt the effects of dementia, which lowly robs its mostly elderly victims of a lifetime of memories and the ability to perform the simplest of daily tasks.

Neuro stimulators have been very helpful with Parkinson's symptoms - I hope this will be successful as well. I have heard of similar therapies being researched for depression as well.
