NBC News (8/21, Fox) reports that a study indicates that an “implanted nerve stimulator may help patients with the most severe depression get some of their day-to-day lives back, even if it doesn’t fully relieve their symptoms.” Patients using the vagus nerve stimulator said that they had “regained significant quality of life, and the improvements have lasted for as long as five years.” The findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.
