The Vagus nerve sends neurochemical signals and is constantly updated about sublime and conscious sensory information. It is from the state of the body’s organs “upstream” to your brain via Afferent nerves. 80-90% of the nerve fibers in the Vagus nerve are for communicating the state of your viscera (organs and tissue) up to your brain via Afferent nerves.
The terms “Afferent” and “Efferent” refers to the nerves that lead into or out of the brain. Afferent neurochemical signals are sent from a nerve receptor into the brain from the body. Efferent signals are sent from the brain to the peripheral sublime and conscious Psychosocial public body. These nerves signal the Psychosocial publics reactions to you. They also cause further Core Identity actions of the Peripheral sublime and conscious interaction towards you via sensations and gut instincts.
Visceral feelings and gut instincts are literally sublime emotional intuition that is transferred up to your brain via the Vagus nerve. From previous studies, neurochemical signals from the Vagus nerve travel from the gut to the brain and they have been linked to controlling mood and distinctive types of fear and anxiety and thoughtfulness. These reactions are a Fight or Flight reaction from the Sympathetic nerve that can cause thoughtful anxiousness in mental health symptoms, but also so can the Vagus nerve.
As with any body/brain barrier feedback loop, messages also travel “downstream” from your conscious mind through the Vagus nerve (via the Efferent nerves) and signal your organs to create an inner-calm so you can Rest and Digest via the Parasympathetic nerve during times of safety. Also, Efferent nerves control when you prepare your body for Sympathetic Fight or Flight” in dangerous situations via Psychosocial public negotiation. You, as a Core Identity, negotiate with the crowd known as a Psychosocial stimulus of sublime Peripheral interaction. Peripheral is like catching something out of the corner of your eye. These three nerves are in the Medulla Oblongata of the brain/body barrier. They control Psychosocial negotiations of body language communication, calming effects and thought via the brain’s Efferent nerves. And the body’s Afferent nerves that lead up the spinal cord and also from the gut.
For a study, a Swiss scientist snipped the Afferent nerve fibers of the Vagus nerve going from the stomach to the brain. Cutting this Vagus nerve connection turned the usual feedback loop between gut instincts and feelings and the brain away from a two-way communication into a one-way logic. It allowed for the researchers to hone in the role that the Vagus nerve plays in conveying gut instincts and emotional feelings in the body/brain barrier.
In particular, the researchers were interested in identifying the link between innate anxiety and conditioned or “learned” fear responses and Psychosocial reactions. Paranoia or fear is a Parasympathetic reaction to Sympathetic Flight. These two nerves should work in Harmony to keep you calm during verbal and body communication. They should also keep you calm and relaxed when in a public Psychosocial Performance. In test animals, the brain was still able to send signals down to the stomach, but the brain couldn’t receive signals coming up from the stomach.
Healthy Vagus nerve communication between your gut and your brain helps to slow you down like the brakes on your car by using neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine and GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid). These neurotransmitters literally lower heart rate, blood pressure, and help your heart and other organs slow down so that you can react via the Parasympathetic nerve into a Rest and Digest of information. This is from conscious and sublime reactions from the Psychosocial crowd and people you are directly in communication with via sublime body and language. This is known as the body mentalist attitude. It is where communication methods are according to the stimulus/Response association from the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic nerves. This is how body mentalist attitude are negotiated within the Medulla Oblongata from the Vagus nerve for Anxiety/depression and paranoid thoughtfulness.
