“Effect of Stimulation on the Vagus Nerve”
The vagus nerve is a largely-internal nerve that controls many bodily functions, including stomach function. We hope that electrically stimulating the nerve around the external ear will also stimulate the internal vagus nerve. If it does, then we hope that this will help our treatment of patients with nausea and vomiting and disordered stomach function. We also hope to be able to measure the activity of the vagus nerve when it is stimulated in other ways. This could help us learn more about studying this nerve in the future.
