Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

Active Comparator: Vagus Nerve Stimulation
Subjects randomized to this arm will receive transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation for 5 minutes on 4 consecutive days.
Sham Comparator: Sham Vagus Nerve Stimulation
Subjects randomized to this arm will receive sham stimulation for 5 minutes for 4 consecutive days.
Device: - Vagus nerve stimulation
Patients will receive transcutaneous stimulation of the auricular branch of the left vagus nerve for 5 minutes daily for 4 consecutive days. The device is a handheld electrical pulse generator and a pair of electrodes to be placed at the ear for stimulation. The specific target at the ear will be the auricular branch of the vagus nerve which innervates the skin of the ear canal. Electrodes will be placed near/at the entrance to the canal of the ear to provide stimulation to the auricular branch.
Device: - Sham vagus nerve stimulation
Patients will receive sham transcutaneous stimulation of the auricular branch of the left vagus nerve for 5 minutes daily for 4 consecutive days. Sham stimulation will be performed in the identical manner as true transcutaneous stimulation except that the patient will not receive electrical stimulation of the vagus nerve.
