Non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation modulates subthalamic beta activity in Parkinson's disease.
Non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) may improve the movement problems experienced by people with Parkinson's. Here we recorded the brain activity of patients during VNS and found that the stimulation progressively reduced the abnormal activity (called beta) typically observed in the brains of people with Parkinson’s. These results show how VNS might be a non-invasive strategy to reduce parkinsonian motor symptoms.
