Experiment Reveals Potency of Ultrasound in Treatment of Disease

A study has revealed that ultrasound can be key in the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological diseases (including epilepsy) in the future.   An experiment that tested a macaque monkey and sheep has revealed that directing bursts of inaudible acoustic energy at a specific visual area of the brain can control the animals’ responses. The results, which were presented at the annual Society for Neuroscience meeting held recently, revealed that focused ultrasound used in the said animals could safely and effectively alter brain activity rather than destroy tissue.
