Researchers Discover Direct Link Between Vagus Nerve and Cognitive Centers of the Brain; “Huge Untapped Potential for Using Vagus Nerve Stimulation to Help the Brain Heal Itself”

Researchers at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus have shown a direct link between vagus nerve stimulation and its connection to the learning centers of the brain. The discovery may lead to treatments that will improve cognitive retention in both healthy and injured nervous systems. The study was published July 19, 2022 in the Neuron. The article is titled Vagus Nerve Stimulation Drives Selective Circuit Modulation Through Cholinergic Reinforcement.”
