Deep brain stimulation could help treat Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, but it is not easily treatable. One potential therapy is deep brain stimulation delivered by a kind of pacemaker. A team of researchers at Charité—Universitätsmedizin Berlin has found that stimulating a specific network in the brain of Alzheimer’s patients reduces their symptoms. The researchers hope the findings, which appear in Nature Communications, will pave the way for further studies.
