Interesting post at Mind Hacks regarding historical treatment for Parkinson's disease via a "vibratory chair." Links to a current paper that discusses the old treatment is available, with some contemporary research cited re: the modest benefits of vibration therapy with PD. Is it possible that there could be an underlying "rhythmic" treatment effect--an effect similar to that we discussed in our recent brain rhythm paper? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Curious minds want to know.
Thanks Mind Hacks for interesting post.
