Transcutaneous vagal nerve stimulation (tVNS) is a noninvasive method of applying electrical stimulation to the vagus nerve through electrodes placed on the external ear. This study will test the effects of an experimental tVNS treatment on cognitive performance and memory in older adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Participants will have one tVNS session and one other session with a week in between, and take cognitive tests and undergo MRI. Researchers will assess changes in memory, cognitive function, and brain activity.
