Caption: Parkinson's disease brain surgery. Surgeons implanting electrodes for deep brain stimulation (DBS) of a patient's subthalamic nucleus. The electrodes provide continuous electrical stimulation, which blocks the signals that cause the tremors characteristic of Parkinson's disease. The electrodes are controlled by a pulse generator unit fitted in the patient's chest. Photographed in Grenoble, France.
