Vagus nerve stimulation has emerged as a promising nonpharmacological intervention for a range of medical conditions. Invasive vagus nerve stimulation via implanted stimulators is employed as a noninvasive treatment for drug-resistant epilepsy, congestive heart failure, and major depression. Noninvasive application of electrical stimulation offers advantages such as reduced infection risk and enhanced usability. We aim to investigate the mechanisms underlying non-invasive so-called transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation (tVNS) and optimize its clinical application using computational modeling.
