Depressed? Stick a Node in your Brain!

Don’t feel bad baby, we got the cure.

Even so, the study shows that DBS (deep brain stimulation) can improve many of the symptoms of severe depression, and that it is a safe procedure that was tolerated well by the patients involved: although the surgical wound became infected in 3 of the patients, and 1 of them experienced a seizure on the evening of the surgery, 7 patients reported no adverse effects whatsoever, and none of those who did not respond to the treatment reported a worsening of their condition.

I think I’ll wait and go with a less invasive solution.
