stimulants increase activity and depressants decrease activity.

stimulants cause more neurotransmitter molecules to diffuse across the synapse depressants stop the next neurone sending nerve impulses - they bind to the receptor molecules it needs to respond to the neurotransmitter molecules.

Electric stimulants which trigger the cells themselves

Alcohol is a Central Nervous System (CNS) depressant. It is also a neurotoxin.

they stop the signals travelling down the nerves by blokcing the synapses

Nerve agents affect the transmission of nerve impulses in your nervous system. Nerve agents can affect the central nervous system, the respiratory system as well as cholinergic nervous system.

I'm asking YOU, how does Reiki affect the vagus nerve?

they transmit nerve pulse activity so nerve cells can 'talk' to each other.

Ether exerts its effects only where it is in contact with the nerve fiber.

The mitochondrion releases the energy for metabolic activity

It;s a muscle relaxer and has chemical properties that are similar to anti depressants, but works by depressing nerve functions so has properties of both.

Vagal nerve stimulation uses a different approach; it provides intermittent electrical stimulation to a nerve outside the brain--the vagus, or tenth cranial nerve, which influences certain patterns of brain activity.

Parasympathetic nervous system

Provided that the said computer is acquiring digitized nerve activity and has software to process and analyse the signals - yes.

motor nueronsNerve tissue carries electrical signals that affect muscle tissue. Nerve tissue's function is to move and coordinate the way the body functions.

Nerve agents typically affect the acetylcholine system by irreversibly binding to the enzyme, acetylcholinesterase. This prevents the body from catabolizing acetylcholine, resulting in an accumulation of the neurotransmitter in the synapse and neuromuscular junction.

When one has glaucoma, it can cause the optic nerve to become cupped. This means that the depression at the front of the optic nerve head becomes much larger than normal.

No, it is a nerve agent, so it would affect the nervous system. Choking agents affect the pulmonary system.
