Description / Table of Contents:
This volume covers the latest research and development in the areas of Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) as it relates to bioelectronic medicine from neonate to adult. The chapters in this book cover topics such as invasive and non-invasive VNS including methodological considerations (study design, stimulation parameters, and use of heart rate variability metrics); mechanisms of action (automatic regulation and immune plasticity); and disorders where VNS approaches may be therapeutic (migraine and cluster headaches, mood disorders, trauma-related disorders, and language learning). In the Neuromethods series style, chapters include the kind of detail and key advice from the specialists needed to get successful results in your laboratory. Comprehensive and thorough, Vagus Nerve Stimulation is a valuable resource for both novice and expert preclinical and clinical scientists, clinicians, physicians, and scholars who are interested in learning more about this exciting and developing field.
