VNS-induced Corticospinal Plasticity

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.

Paired-Associative Stimulation (PAS)

Simultaneous activation of connections in motor cortex via stimulation to the nerves and brain.

Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS)

Recruits the auricular branch of the vagus nerve which activates brain structures that release chemicals mediating cortical plasticity.

Sham Stimulation

Sub-threshold stimulation that does not activate neural structures.
