Deep Brain Stimulation
Deep brain stimulation is a surgery that involves the implanting of electrodes in certain areas of the patient’s brain. Electrical impulses are produced by these electrodes to regulate any abnormal impulses in the brain. These electrical impulses can also affect certain chemicals and cells in the brain. The amount of stimulation that the brain receives in this procedure is controlled by a device, much like a pacemaker, placed under the patient’s skin in the upper chest. A wire travels under the skin to connect this device to the electrodes.
