Factsheet explaining vagus nerve stimulation therapy in epilepsy. VNS therapy involves a small electrical device, like a pacemaker, which is implanted under the skin of your chest. The device sends electrical impulses to your brain through a nerve in your neck called the vagus nerve. The aim is to reduce the number of seizures you have and make them less severe.
