Young & Shaky ~ AJ Demos DBS for Parkinson's

Thanks to Kottke for spotting Andrew Johnson's video demonstrating the effects of DBS on the motor symptoms of Parkinson's Disease...
"Andrew was diagnosed with Early Onset Parkinson's Disease in 2009 when he was 35 years old. He lives with his wife and two children in Auckland, New Zealand. In November 2012 and February 2013 he underwent a surgical procedure, Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery, to help control his motor symptoms. This has been hugely beneficial to his quality of life. He is the author of a blog youngandshaky.com which he created to raise awareness of the effects of Parkinson's Disease."
