An individual with a severe tremor from Parkinson's disease demonstrates the effectiveness of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). DBS is the implantation of electrodes into the brain along with a pacemaker-like controller and battery which is implanted in the chest. For Parkinson's disease, the electrodes typically target the subthalamic nucleus, an area of the basal ganglia, which is involved in motor selection and even cognitive/emotional control. The settings for the device can be manually adjusted by the patient. This demonstration shows what a dramatic improvement the intervention can have.
