Brain pacemaker implant can delay progress of Alzheimer’s disease: says study

Scientists have discovered that a brain pacemaker implant can help slow down the progress of the Alzheimer’s disease in patients.

The implant can delay the loss of problem-solving and decision-making skills in patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

The study was conducted by surgically implanting thin electrical wires into the frontal lobes of the brains of patients with Alzheimers disease

The frontal lobes are the parts of the brain that are responsible for abilities to solve problems, organize, plan, and utilize decisions.

The study found that implants helped keep the frontal lobes remain active for a longer duration as compared to the patients without the implants

This information can help a lot of people with Alzheimers disease to live a normal life for some time longer as the disease has no absolute cure at present.
