Maybe: Many pregnant women feel like their emotions, ability to concentrate, ability to prioritize and memory are all effected in pregnancy. The hormonal changes in the brain during pregnancy are significant. I encouraged women to raise these concerns with their doctor at a routine visit. I encourage them to be specific in what seems different so we can determine if it normal or not.

Is deep brain stimulation suggested for Parkinson's disease?

Dr. Larry Armstrong
Neurosurgery 27 years experience
Yes: It is more successful than creating lesions within the brain. It is especially good in younger onset patients- yet can be placed in middle age patients. The location of the stimulation is what the neurosurgeon will determine to achieve the best benefit. Look for a specialist in functional neurosurgery.
Dr. Zachary Levine
Neurosurgery 28 years experience
You work with your neurosurgeon and neurologist to achieve the best results. This is a cooperative effort. Choose specialists with experience and a team that communicates well
