Understanding and Optimizing Vagus Nerve Stimulation Directed Cortical Plasticity
Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is a tool that has been used to treat epilepsy, depression and enhance memory. In the last few years VNS has been observed to direct cortical plasticity when paired with a sensory or motor ...
Extinction Learning Paired with Vagus Nerve Stimulation Enhances Behavioral Outcomes and Drives Plasticity in Extinction Networks
Extinction learning is integral to the treatment of substance use disorder (SUD), and anxiety and trauma related disorders such as phobia, generalized anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These disorders ...
Neuromodulatory Pathways Required for Targeted Plasticity Therapy
Targeted plasticity therapy (TPT) utilizes vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) paired with physical rehabilitation to direct plasticity and promote recovery. Pre-clinical trials in stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain ...
