+ - Deep Brain Stimulation Eliminates Man's Tremors In Video->

Submitted by kkleiner
kkleiner (1468647) writes "A dramatic YouTube video demonstrates how tremors from Parkinson's Disease can be nullified by an implanted brain pacemaker. The video by 39-year-old Cyber-AJ (Andrew Johnson) shows the dramatic difference in his movements when the remote-controlled deep brain stimulation device is on and off. The technique may not be appropriate for all PD sufferers, but it's a clear sign that brain stimulation can have dramatic effects."
