Tickling the ear with a small electric current could rebalance the nervous system in over-55s and help them age more healthily, research suggests.

Stimulation of the vagus nerve, which connects to the heart, lungs and gut, led to improvements in body, sleep and mood, a small study found.

The University of Leeds team said the procedure could make a big difference to people's lives.
But more research is needed to work out the long-term health effects.


Can't wait...
Ah, but I was so much older then ... I'm younger than that now

The sex organs are also innervated by the vagus ,,,
Does Magna Carta mean nothing to you? Did she die in vain?
