Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation Enhances Post-error Slowing
TLDR
We assessed the causal role of the noradrenergic system in modulating PES by applying transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation (tVNS), a new noninvasive and safe method to stimulate thevagus nerve and to increase NE concentrations in the brain. Expand
