Studies in this category form a large spectrum, and they vary from those pertaining to cortical excitability (including the various techniques for determining the cortical motor thresholds, silent periods for studying intracortical inhibition, and facilitation performed by different neurotransmitters with paired stimulation methods); mapping the cortical areas responsible for executing particular functions and methods containing magnetic interference to the performance of certain functions; and measuring the resultant deficits in the stimulated or remote areas (6).
Although many details about how stimulation affects the brain remain unclear, studies suggest that vagus stimulation increases levels of the neurotransmitter norepinephrine, which carries messages between nerve cells in parts of the brain implicated in mood disorders.
