Transcutaneous Auricular Vagus Nerve Stimulation Enhances Cerebrospinal Fluid Circulation and Restores Cognitive Function in the Rodent Model of Vascular Cognitive Impairment

Evidence is provided that taVNS can facilitate CSF circulation and that repetitive taV NS can ameliorate VCI symptoms and both long- and short-term stimulations showed similar recovery effects.

“The Wandering Nerve Linking Heart and Mind” – The Complementary Role of Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation in Modulating Neuro-Cardiovascular and Cognitive Performance

T-VNS offers exciting potential as a therapeutic intervention in cognitive decline and aging populations, classically affected by reduced cerebral perfusion by modulating both limbic and frontal cortical structures, regulating cerebral perfusions and improving parasympathetic modulation of the cardiovascular system.

Vagus Nerve Stimulation as a Potential Therapy in Early Alzheimer’s Disease: A Review

VNS has the potential to be a broadly available therapy to manage cognitive symptoms in early AD, however, the magnitude and specificity of its effects remains to be elucidated, and the non- inferiority of the effects of non-invasive VNS as compared with invasive VNS still needs to be established.

Noninvasive vagus nerve stimulation in Parkinson’s disease: current status and future prospects

The novel hypothesis that noninvasive vagus nerve stimulation (nVNS), targeting efferent and afferent vagal projections, is a promising therapeutic tool to improve gait and cognitive control and ameliorate non-motor symptoms in people with Parkinson’s is reviewed.



The anatomical basis for transcutaneous auricular vagus nerve stimulation

The neuroanatomy of the ABVN is explored with reference to clinical surveys examining Arnold’s reflex, cadaveric studies, fMRI studies, electrophysiological studies, acupuncture studies, retrograde tracing studies, and studies measuring changes in autonomic parameters in response to auricular tVNS.

Effects of Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation (tVNS) on Conflict-Related Behavioral Performance and Frontal Midline Theta Activity

It is found that tVNS enhanced global behavioral accuracy, i.e., decreased the proportion of erroneous and missed responses, compared with sham (placebo) stimulation, and reduced conflict costs on behavioral performance in go/change response conflicts.

Memory Reinforcement and Attenuation by Activating the Human Locus Coeruleus via Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation

AtVNS seems to be easier to use and has been more often investigated than ctVNS, and future potential applications in human brain diseases involving memory dysfunctions are delineated.

lmerTest Package: Tests in Linear Mixed Effects Models

The lmerTest package extends the 'lmerMod' class of the lme4 package, by overloading the anova and summary functions by providing p values for tests for fixed effects, and implementing the Satterthwaite's method for approximating degrees of freedom for the t and F tests.

The development of phonemic coding strategies for serial recall

Abstract This study examined differences between adults and children and between normal and poor readers in the use of phonemic coding strategies for storing words in working memory. In the first

Raincloud plots: a multi-platform tool for robust data visualization

This tutorial paper provides basic demonstrations of the strength of raincloud plots and similar approaches, outline potential modifications for their optimal use, and provides open-source code for their streamlined implementation in R, Python and Matlab.

Modulating auditory selective attention by non‐invasive brain stimulation: Differential effects of transcutaneous vagal nerve stimulation and transcranial random noise stimulation

The data provide evidence for the functional relevance of the subcortical NE system in the regulation of neural resources that allows a phasic response to incoming target stimuli and indicate that frontal cortex structures are crucially involved in the successful evaluation of the respective information.

Effects of Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation (tVNS) on the P300 and Alpha-Amylase Level: A Pilot Study

Preliminary evidence for a modulatory influence of tVNS on the P3b, which may be partly mediated by activation of the noradrenergic system, is clearly warranted and future studies need to clarify whether tV NS also facilitates other processes, such as learning and memory, and whether t VNS can be used as therapeutic tool.
