Brain stimulation can help treat Alzheimer’s disease

Deep brain stimulation for Alzheimer's disease

In individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, the greatest positive effect has been observed when stimulating the area between the fornix (green) and the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (blue). Also shown are two brain structures – the thalamus (pink) and the hippocampus (yellow) – as well as the stimulation electrodes. Credits: © Charité | Ana Sofia Rios

Researchers at Charité have discovered a brain network that, when stimulated, can relieve symptoms.
