PhD project: Role of the vagus nerve in energy balance regulation in rats - A surgical approach

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery is the golden standard for bariatric surgery. In my project, the role of the vagus nerve in the effects seen after bariatric surgery is investigated. Especially of interest is the difference in effects of bariatric surgery and vagus nerve stimulation on detailed eating behaviour and consequently glycaemic control, to see if there is a common denominator responsible for the beneficial effects on obesity-related problems after bariatric surgery and vagus nerve stimulation.
