To Dream Again

Sara Gordon was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disease when she was thirteen. She was able to hold it together for seven years and then it all unraveled. Dr. Brian H. Kopell, Director, Center for Neuromodulation at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, performed deep brain stimulation. "It is like a digital drug where we place an electrode in a specific circuit in a brain, regulate the electricity in that circuit and change the course of the disease.", explains Dr. Kopell.
