Stimulating luck

Life Science

According to new research, people affected by Parkison’s disease might finally get lucky.

The growing limitations of a body’s motor functions caused by Parkinson’s are linked to the lack of a specific hormone aka Dopamine.

It is produced in our brain and typically released when we do something that makes us happy (social media addicts know what we are talking about). But what if the production is going bye-bye?

Stimulating the brain with tiny electric wires implanted into the brain has been used for several decades – with mixed outcomes. Also sounds creepy.

Scientists now may have found a natural way to boost Dopamine production for good: a molecule pair that when injected into a body may be able to not only slow down Parkinson’s disease but halt it altogether.

A move into the right direction!
