Virtual reality may help treat autism, Parkinson’s

The technology, described in the journal Scientific Reports, could help the patients shift their perceptions of time, which their conditions lead them to perceive differently.
The researchers used a virtual reality game, Robo Recall, to create a natural setting in which to encourage re-calibration of time perception.(Shutterstock)

Your eyes can give an early warning sign of Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease could soon be detected with an eye scan that indicates the thinness of the retina, a sign that is linked to the disease.
The thinning of the retina is linked to the loss of brain cells that produce dopamine, a substance that helps control movement — a hallmark of the Parkinson’s disease that impairs motor ability.(Shutterstock)

Parkinson’s disease, this new virus could be the reason behind it

A new kind of virus called as the lytic Lactococcus phages was found to be higher in those patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease (PD).
The researchers, led by George Tetz, showed that the abundance of lytic Lactococcus phages was higher in PD patients when compared to healthy individuals.(Shutterstock)

Parkinson’s treatment: A new self-tuning brain implant may help treat patients

Deep brain stimulation is a method of managing Parkinson’s disease symptoms by surgically implanting an electrode, a thin wire, into the brain. Deep brain stimulation has been used to treat Parkinson’s disease symptoms for 25 years, but limitations have led researchers to look for ways to improve the technique.
