Could deep brain stimulation stop Alzheimer's?

A groundbreaking study could offer new hope for those suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

A new clinical trial may hold the key to stopping the rapid mental decline in Alzheimer's patients.

Researchers are finding promising results in deep brain stimulation.

Four years ago, Robert Linton had 2 electrodes implanted in the memory area of his brain.

A battery in his chest sends more than 100 electrical impulses a second to his brain.

The treatment has put the brakes on his Alzheimer's allowing him to lead a normal life.

His doctor says Robert's brain scans show the difference.

The study has been conducted on Canadian patients. Doctor hope to get more answers by studying more patients.
