New Method to Record Vagus Nerve Activity Could Help Develop Treatments for IBD, Other Inflammatory Diseases, Study Suggests
A new method to record signals transmitted in the vagus nerve in mice could aid research on inflammation-related disorders, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The new protocol was developed by researchers at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research. "Our new methodology allows us to begin developing ways to decode the nervous system in such a way that we better understand how to detect and regulate inflammation," Harold A. Siverman, PhD, the study’s first author, said in a
