The Dopamine Chronicles

An almost daily cartoon about Parkinson's


They got all sorts of new stuff on the horizon, basically once the dopamine medicine stops working, they can pop in a wire and control your tremors through a “pacemaker” for the brain (they actually implant it in the same spot under the collar bone.) Now what would that look like if it was “steampunked”? Or can you get a radio station or two on it? (Don’t know if I WANT talk radio beamed directly into my brain!) This is GOOD for maybe two more images out of the idea (YIPPEE!)

  1. Interesting… a straight line into the brain.

    All of a sudden, advertising becomes much more than a colorful suggestion… and that’s just on the ‘receiving’ end of things. What happens if they can extract info as well?

    Broadcasts become Braincasts… I seriously doubt the world is ready for what’s rattling around in MY brain.

    Just imagine all the ‘flat-lines’ coming out of Congress though…. humm… did I really think that?

  2. I figure if I can tweak the signal just right I might be able to channel Elvis, Liberace or the saucermen from Mars Attacks! Funny how getting something like this makes you focus on the important stuff (which NEVER is the important stuff to the world…)
