Deep brain stimulation: Deep brain stimulation (DBS) involves the surgical implantation of an electrode deep into the brain, where it sends continuous electrical signals to the part of the brain that controls movement and blocks aberrant signals that cause tremors and rigidity; the wire is connected under the skin to a battery pack implanted in the collarbone area. Magnetic resonance imaging or computed tomography is used to determine the placement of the wire in the brain. DBS may be used to treat other neurological conditions in the future.
