Someone recently asked me all about The Vagus Nerve Stimulation, well I got the answer for you right here.
Vagus nerve stimulation therapy is a treatment for epilepsy that involves astimulator (or’pulse generator’) which is connected, inside the body, to theleft vagus nerve in the neck. The stimulator sends regular, mild electrical stimulations through this nerve to help calm down the irregular electrical brain activity that leads to seizures.
