I didn't find this quote above and found it on FB I added it to the discussion happening there;
Nigel Wadham, hey that's me, replied on FB,
Hi all, 3-4 of MY brain CELLS must HAVE been THINKING over NIGHT and VIEWING Dr.F's POST probably MEANS I WAS on A similar WAVE length.
If the Vagus nerve stimulation changes the symptom group I am of the view that it is because of a symbiotic relationship between the Vagus and the artery and vein it is contacting.
A feedback system/data capture to give the hypothalamus and the thalamus information on brain flow of blood. If there is issues the a default/fail-safe kicks in and the symptom group of dysautonomia occurs?
Mike Arata is there any data about the left or right or both sides involved from your data? Lack of stimulation/inputs may occur from one side, the dominant Jug?
We know that for instance the temperature sensing and BP knowledge happens in the similar region, yet we don't know the action.
Other sensing is known to happen there and we don't know how that generates the feedback or how it is processed and acted on.
I hear what Dr F is saying and the clues are there that there has to be a system of informing the brain with several supplies of data. Visual alone or temp alone or BP alone are not enough to make vital decisions such as heart rate or whether there is sufficient blood 'flowing' through the brain for a particular activity.
Having a flow issue can be compensated by collateral growth and flow and that data will be unavailable to the Vagus 'blood flow info system possibly', so there will be multiple pickups for info, where?
I don't think that the skull differences are going to be the only possibility, there is too much variation across cultures, from injury and ill health to be that simplistic an answer.
I think the systems of brain input and computation need to be understood first. By testing flows of CSF and Blood around the neck and skull regions we will see more to answer Dr. F's observations, yet there is still the grey area about the 'why' does the system function and 'how' to be understood it in depth.https://www.facebook.com/Dr.Arata/posts ... tif_t=like
