Shocking New Therapy For Stroke Recovery

Shocking New Therapy For Stroke Recovery

About every 40 seconds, someone somewhere has a stroke. Every four minutes, someone dies from a stroke. They can strike anytime and affect anyone.

Now scientists at the University of Texas at Dallas are studying a new way to help stroke survivors regain any physical abilities that were lost after a stroke.

Daniel Hulsey, a Ph.D. student of cognitive neuroscience at UT Dallas said, “We want to be able to restore that function by restoring circuitry in the brain.”

To accomplish this, researchers turned their attention to the vagus nerve, the nerve that tells the brain how the body is doing.

“When you stimulate this nerve, you send a signal up into the brain that [indicates] what just happened is really interesting and important,” said Michael Kilgard, a neuroscientist at UT Dallas.

When electrical pulses stimulate the nerve, the brain releases chemicals from different areas and essentially re-organizes itself. This enables the brain to learn new tasks.

    if that is a fact one could stimulate that nerve with electroacupunture, im going to try it…..enriquemir@hotmail.com

    Very interesting; I hope this comes to fruition soon and helps lots of people.  Meanwhile, I’ve compiled some nutritional strategies to prevent and recover from strokes:  http://tiny.cc/strokesolutions

    Great ! May it help all stroke warriors !
    PS : A Stroke can happen to any at any time. If proper and timely treatment is not given, one can be maimed for life or even die. But still awareness of stroke symptoms is very less. The purpose of Stroke Support India is to raise stroke awareness and to deliver hope and help to Indian stroke affected and their families. To know more about stroke and join WhatsApp Group for ongoing support please see : https://strokesupport.in/contact/

    Will this work for peripheral vision loss?

  15. Chiyu Ryuu on May 18, 2021 at 5:01 pm

    Would like to know what physical activities could stimulate the vagus nerve. Just doing vagal compression like leaning forward holding full breath and pressing down? Physical activities would be less invasive than a probe insertion.
