Project Details


The body's regulation of breathing and cardiovascular function needs to be matched to maintain optimal functioning of the organism. The brain
plays an important role in this regulation. Problems with this interaction play important roles in the development or maintenance of some
cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension or heart failure. This grant aims to identify the important neural circuits in order to understand how
this interaction is altered in disease states.
