Further to the recurring thread on memory and the recent thread on the vagus nerve I found the following note at the end of an article from Associated Press which probably came from a news release from Cyberonics. Food for thought, though what one does with it I'm not entirely certain....

"The vagus nerve might also:

-Help stroke or head-injury victims' memory recover. In a study last year, epilepsy patients scored 36 percent better at recalling words read just before their vagus nerve was stimulated. The theory: Emotional hormones seem to stimulate the vagus nerve to store memories, so maybe the implant could mimic that effect in injured patients. "
