A study published in the Archives of Neurology found that deep brain stimulation improves brain function in patients with a mild form of Alzheimer's disease. The treatment involves directing an electronic pulse to the brain from a device embedded in the chest. Researchers who used PET to measure brain cell function at one month and one year following device implantation found a marker of neuron activity had increased among the patients.
