Monitoring Chemical Changes in Brain Could Help Treat Parkinson's Disease

July 11, 2012

Mayo Clinic researchers have found a novel way to monitor real-time chemical changes in the brains of patients undergoing deep brain stimulation (DBS). This groundbreaking insight will help physicians more effectively use DBS to treat brain disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and Tourette syndrome.
