Deep Brain Stimulation Continues to Show Promise for Patients with Mild Alzheimer's Disease
Researchers in this study may have brought further insight into the effects of deep brain stimulation (DBS) in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Forty-two patients who were diagnosed with the disease were enrolled and had DBS electrodes directed at the fornix. The fornix is the bundle of nerve fibers in the brain that carry signals from the hippocampus. Results from this study show that utilizing DBS in the treatment of Alzheimer’s is safe and that some participants began experiencing slower cognitive decline as a result of the treatment.
