Info on seizures and epilepsy, especially natural treatments for seizures.

Vagus Nerve

 

  • Cholecystokinin acts in the abdomen through gastric vagal fibers, not directly on the brain.
  • Vagal afferent neurons become leptin resistant after a high-fat diet.
  • The vagus nerve is probably the nerve gut bacteria use to transmit information to the brain. Gut bacteria may be involved in anxiety.
  • It carries taste info to the brain.
