Possible New Treatment For Parkinson's

There may be a new way to treat Parkinson's disease.

Your brain has stop-and-go circuits to control movement that are believed to malfunction in Parkinson's patients.

Scientists implanted hair-sized fibric optic wires in a mouse's brain and found they were able to activate the go circuit, allowing natural movement.

More research is needed before it can be tested on humans.
