SfN2016: New, noninvasive stimulation technique for deep brain structures revealed, could treat Parkinson’s disease symptoms

Researchers led by Nir Grossman (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MA, USA) have developed a new, noninvasive technique to stimulate deep brain structures, which could provide relief for Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients. Unveiled at SfN’s Neuroscience 2016 in San Diego (CA, USA; 11–16 November 2016), the technique, temporal interface stimulation, provides an alternative to the more invasive deep brain stimulation (DBS) and could, say scientists, revolutionize the risk-benefit ratio of PD therapy.
