Treatement of epilepsy by vagus nerve stimulation. A small case neurostimulateur (NCP, Neurocybernetic prosthesis), type pacemaker, is implanted under the left clavicle. It is linked to electrodes rolled up around the vagus nerve, at the level of the neck. Once programmed, the stimulator sends out regular electrical impulses, which reduces the frequency of epilepsy crises.
