Remarkable video released by UCLA Medical Center shows the advances of brain surgery technology. On Thursday morning (May 23), doctors at UCLA used Twitter to document the implant of a brain pacemaker for a patient. The procedure was intended to combat the debilitating effects of Parkinson’s disease. Mid-way through the brain surgery, the patient was awakened and asked to perform a series of cognitive test to gauge his brain function, coordination, and mobility.
