Vagus Nerve Stimulation Reverses the Extinction Impairments in a Model of PTSD with Prolonged and Repeated Trauma
(Taylor and Francis Ltd, 2019-04-23)
We have shown that vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) enhances extinction of conditioned fear and reduces anxiety in rat models of PTSD using moderate stress. However, it is still unclear if VNS can be effective in enhancing ...
Enhancing Plasticity in Central Networks Improves Motor and Sensory Recovery after Nerve Damage
(Springer Nature, 2019-12-19)
Nerve damage can cause chronic, debilitating problems including loss of motor control and paresthesia, and generates maladaptive neuroplasticity as central networks attempt to compensate for the loss of peripheral connectivity. ...
Norepinephrine and Serotonin are Required for Vagus Nerve Stimulation Directed Cortical Plasticity
(Academic Press Inc., 2019-06-07)
Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) paired with forelimb training drives robust, specific reorganization of movement representations in the motor cortex. This effect is hypothesized to be mediated by VNS-dependent engagement of ...
