Effect of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) on peripheral nerve regeneration using fibrin glue derived from snake venom
(Elsevier B.V., 2015-04-01)
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to assess whether the adhesive permits the collateral repair of axons originating from a vagus nerve to the interior of a sural nerve graft, and whether low-level laser therapy ...
Morphology and morphometry of the vagus nerve in male and female spontaneously hypertensive rats
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2008)
The vagus nerve is an important component of the efferent arm of the baroreflex. Blood pressure levels as well as baroreflex control of circulation are significantly different in male and female spontaneously hypertensive ...
The role of the vagus nerve in the generation of cardiorespiratory interactions in a neotropical fish, the pacu, Piaractus mesopotamicus
The role of the vagus nerve in determining heart rate (f (H)) and cardiorespiratory interactions was investigated in a neotropical fish, Piaractus mesopotamicus. During progressive hypoxia f (H) initially increased, ...

Neural reflex regulation of systemic inflammation: potential new targets for sepsis therapy
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014)
Sepsis progresses to multiple organ dysfunction due to the uncontrolled release of inflammatory mediators, and a growing body of evidence shows that neural signals play a significant role in modulating the immune response. ...

Epileptologists probe vagus nerve stimulation in children with refractory epilepsy: a promise against sudden unexpected death in epilepsy
(Academia Brasileira de Neurologia - ABNEURO, 2012-12-01)
It is clear that sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is mainly a problem for people with refractory epilepsy, but our understanding of the best way to its prevention is still incomplete. Although the pharmacological ...
