Lystens Pioner

Lystens Pioner Review

In the 1950s, Tulane University researcher Dr. Robert Heath invented and experimented with deep brain stimulation. After being shrouded in controversy for decades, DBS is back as a known therapy for Parkinsons and a possible treatment for depression, chronic pain and other conditions. In her new book, Lone Frank explains what happened in the years when no one talked about DBS or Dr. Heath.
