UA researchers study pacemakerlike device for stroke patients

This is way cool! East Valley Tribune: "TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Doctors at the University of Arizona are testing a pacemakerlike, brain-stimulating device for usefulness in restoring hand and arm movement in stroke patients. About 536,000 Americans survive strokes each year, and many are left with permanent disabilities. For decades, little has changed in the approach to recovery. Patients undergo physical therapy and live with whatever function they regain."
