Light-based deep brain stimulation relieves symptoms of Parkinson's disease: Fast-acting, light-reactive genetic tools could reveal how deep brain stimulation works

Succeeding where earlier attempts have failed, the method promises to provide new insights into why deep brain stimulation works and ways in which it can be improved on a patient-by-patient basis.
