One of those rare moments in science

When an inventor knows he’s on to something

That may solve a case—

In 1987, when an electric pulse in the subthalamic nucleus

Stopped the tremor

Deep Brain Stimulation was born.

Today, 140,000 people’s lives have improved

And we pay tribute to

Alim Louis Benabid, M.D., Ph.D

For his serendipitous discovery
