"We saw that just two weeks of daily tVNS helped to re-balance the levels of activity in the two branches of the autonomic nervous system," said Susan Deuchars, one of the study's authors.
tVNS daily seems to redress the balance of this activity towards that associated with healthy function," she said.
The study recruited 29 healthy volunteers, aged 55 or above, and gave each of them the tVNS therapy for 15 minutes per day, over a two week period.
Dr Susan Deuchars, one of the senior authors on the study, said: "We believe this stimulation can make a big difference to people's lives, and we're now hoping to conduct further studies to see if tVNS can benefit multiple disorders." (ANI)
Regarding tinnitus, a promising preliminary study was recently performed to assess the combined effect of tVNS and tailor-made notched classical music .
In this study, we hypothesized that the maximal sensory thresholds at each tVNS site that could be tolerated without any painful sensation are associated with unique tinnitus characteristics and affect the treatment outcomes.
The aim of the present study was to explore whether tVNS
can enhance the benefit induced by robotic rehabilitation on motor function of the upper limb in chronic stroke.
