So what have we concluded about the placebo? It can relieve pain. It works through the opiate system. Itís anatomically specific and uses the same networks. We have to use these techniques for things other than pain, and theyíre being done now with treatment of depression. There was an article in Science two months ago showing similar results in treatment of depression with quantitative EEGs of the brain. And itís being done with Parkinsonís, using deep brain stimulation, which relieves the rigidity and the tremor of Parkinson patients, and remarkably, so does a placebo.
