Noninvasive VNS to Facilitate Excitability in Motor Cortex

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) positively influences motor rehabilitation in stroke recovery. Transcutaneous auricular vagus nerve stimulation (taVNS) has shown effects on cortical plasticity. We investigate whether combination of TMS and taVNS is more effective at motor cortex excitability than either modality alone.
