Deep brain stimulation (DBS) involves implanting fine wires, with electrodes at the tips into the brain. Although it is not a cure, this treatment does provide relief from physical symptoms of Parkinson's such as hand tremor. A truly miraculous thing to watch, it works the moment it is turned on – hence the suggestion here of a magician’s box of tricks.
