Abstract

Objective. Smooth muscle help regulate the diameter of the airways and their constriction can contribute to the pathology of acute asthma attacks. This study sought to determine if applying a specific electrical signal to the vagus nerve (VN) could minimize histamine-induced bronchocons...read more

Panic Disorders

Panic disorders include overwhelming panic attacks that are often spontaneous and not triggered by a particular event or situation. Treatment often includes pharmacotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy and psychodynamic therapy. Discover the latest research on panic disorders here.

Vagal Control of Feeding

The vagus nerve has afferent and efferent pathways that affect satiation, regulate appetite, and control feeding behavior. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to the vagal control of feeding.

Asthma

This feed focuses in Asthma in which your airways narrow and swell. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.

Anxiety Disorders

Discover the latest research on anxiety disorders including agoraphobia, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder here.

Childhood Asthma

Childhood asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the respiratory airways. There are many factors that influence the susceptibility for the development of childhood asthma such as infections, including respiratory syncytial virus and gene-environment interactions. Here is the latest research on childhood asthma.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.
