In this review we will briefly summarize the evidence that autonomic imbalance, more specifically reduced parasympathetic activity to the heart, generates and/or maintains many cardiorespiratory diseases and will discuss mechanisms and sites, from myocytes to the brain, that are potential translational targets for restoring parasympathetic activity and improving cardiorespiratory health.
