BACKGROUND Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is currently used to treat refractory epilepsy and is being investigated as a potential therapy for a range of conditions, including heart failure, tinnitus, obesity and Alzheimer's disease. However, the invasive nature and expense limits the use of VNS in patient populations and hinders the exploration of the mechanisms involved. OBJECTIVE We investigated a non-invasive method of VNS through electrical stimulation of the auricular branch of the vagus… CONTINUE READING
