VNS-Supplemented Motor Retraining After Stroke
“VNS-supplemented Motor Retraining After Stroke”
The goal of this study is to learn more about the connections between the brain, spinal cord, and muscles and how these connections can be strengthened after neurological injury.
Controlling movement of an object on computer screen by adjusting muscle activity.
Vagus Nerve Stimulation
Recruits the auricular branch of the vagus nerve which activates brain structures that release chemicals mediating cortical plasticity.
Sub-threshold stimulation that does not activate neural structures.
