The Dopamine Chronicles

An almost daily cartoon about Parkinson's

“Do it yourself electro-shock therapy… (quoting the Daily Beast)”

Well not THAT much voltage, actually 1/1000th of what you’d get in a Russian Psychiatric hospital… The heir of the Fisher electronics corporation (made great CHEAP stereos) has developed a doodad that you connect to your head and shoot a mild electronic current through the brain… helps with sleep AND there’s some anecdotal evidence that it helps with Parkinson’s gait syndrome.

Now if I can just cobble one of these together with parts from Radio Shack… the catch is that this thingy costs $495-$595 (my spidey sense is tingling!)
