FDA OKs Brain Pacemaker for Depression

from the shocking-developments dept.
Duke Machesne writes "On Friday, the FDA approved a new therapy for the
severely depressed who have run out of treatment options: a 
pacemaker-like
implant that sends tiny electric shocks to the brain. The Food and Drug
Administration's clearance opens Cyberonics Inc.'s vagus nerve 
stimulator,
or VNS, as a potential treatment for an estimated 4 million Americans 
with
hard-to-treat depression - despite controversy over whether it's really 
been
proven to work."
