The article focuses on an article which was seen in the "Milwaukee Journal Citizen" in December of 2007. The article reported on a pioneering treatment for tinnitus and depression which entails removing part of a patient's skull and placing wires on the patient's cerebral cortex that lead to an electrical generator which is implanted under the patient's collarbone. The treatment was found to be effective for both disorders and researchers have theorized that it may be effective because tinnitus and depression have both been linked to abnormal electricity in brain cells.
