Hello. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical procedure where an implant is placed into the brain. It sends specific impulses to the brain. It can be used for many purposes: chronic pain, tremor, dystonia and Parkinson’s disease. It has been used for treating clinical depression. A frontal cortex is being stimulated here. A remission in signs of clinical depression has been achieved with this treatment. I hope this helps. Good luck with your reading. Bye!
