Effects of Vagus Nerve Stimulation on Weight Loss and Associated Disorders: A Therapeutic Perspective

Treatment of depression by left cervical VNS led to weight loss in 14 patients [3], even though the patients did not diet or exercise. In patients treated by VNS for depression, an immediate effect on the craving for sweets was seen in response to stimulation of the vagus nerve in the neck: turning the device on or off, with patients blind to the on-off status, significantly changed craving ratings for sweet foods.
