Description

A new experimental brain implant treats a woman for depression, without antidepressants - and it is said to be a "startling" achievement that offers hope for those suffering from intractable mental illnesses.
The implant detects patterns of brain activity that are associated with depression and interrupts them with weak pulses of electrical stimulation that are sent deep into the brain.
This is a very clever brain hack that allowed the 36-year-old patient to return to her normal life for the first time in 5 years. This patient, however, was the only one on whom this method was tested, but it showed that such brain activity could be detected and slightly corrected.
Initially, which lasted a week, the temporary brain implant recorded a wide range of activities, and the patient constantly recorded her mood on a tablet. Further, the ML algorithm revealed characteristic signs of activity in the amygdala when the girl was in the worst mood. Through trial and error, it was possible to identify exactly the area of ​​the brain that was responsible for depression, which was subsequently affected by tiny doses of electricity. After that, the girl said that she experienced the strongest joyful feeling and laughed loudly quite spontaneously.
At the second stage, a small operation was performed and an implant with built-in batteries was implanted directly into the skull, it already automatically fixed the pressure and gave impulses about 300 times a day. The patient said that there were no unpleasant sensations, except for a subtle vigor and positiveness. The device costs about $ 35,000 and is essentially an adapted device for the treatment of epilepsy, the NeuroPace RNS System. After successful trials, the researchers have already included two more patients in their trials and hope to recruit nine more, the technique still needs to be tested, it is not clear whether it will help everyone. Very cool news, people of the future are happy people
