Understanding tVNS: Parameters and Applications – An Overview

  Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation (tVNS) is a non-invasive form of nerve stimulation that has been shown to have a range of potential therapeutic applications. By stimulating the vagus nerve, tVNS can modulate a variety of physiological processes, including inflammation, pain, heart rate, blood pressure, digestion and more.  In this article, we’ll take a look […]

Vagus Nerve and Inflammation

Vagus Nerve Inflammation

Inflammation and Chronic Illness For the past three decades there is growing scientific evidence that prolonged inflammation is the source of many chronic illnesses. Many researchers also believe that most age related illnesses and health issues can be linked to high levels of pro-inflammatory markers in the blood. Chronic inflammation is a strong predictor of […]

Vagus nerve stimulation modulates eating behaviour

Researchers in Germany have been investigating the potential of using transcutaneous auricular Vagus Nerve Stimulation (taVNS) to help regulate our eating habits. In a study published in the Brain Imagine and Behaviour journal, scientists administered an hour of tVNS stimulation to a cohort of healthy participants and put them in an fMRI scanner to see […]

Vagus Nerve Stimulation Could Boost Language Learning

Researchers have discovered that transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation (tVNS) administered to the auricular (at the left ear) branch of the vagus nerve can enhance language learning in adults. The findings were reported this month by a team of scientists from the University of Pittsburgh and University of California, USA; and published in the Nature Partner […]

A (very) Brief History of Electrical Vagus Nerve Stimulation

Vagus Stimulation Spinner w

Vagus nerve stimulation has a long precedence in medicine. As early as 1880, physicians noted that compression of the vagus nerve in the neck could abort seizures. It was not fully understood at first that this was specifically actuated by compression of the nerve rather than the carotid artery, which runs alongside the nerve, but […]
