GABAergic mediation induced by stimulation of the vagal nerve.

Link – GABAergic mediation of hippocampal theta rhythm induced by stimulation of the vagal nerve. Abstract The key question to be answered in the present study was whether the medial septal GABAergic receptors are engaged in the pharmacological profile of the hippocampal formation (HPC) theta rhythm induced by vagal nerve stimulation (VNS). It was demonstrated […]

Link – Transcutaneous vagal nerve stimulation improves gastroenteric complaints in Parkinson’s disease patients. Abstract BACKGROUND: Gastrointestinal dysfunctions are common in Parkinson’s disease. Their management is still challenging and new treatment options are needed. OBJECTIVE: To test whether transcutaneous vagal nerve stimulation can improve gastrointestinal dysfunction in patients with Parkinson’s disease. METHODS: We performed a randomized […]
