Advances in parasympathetic control of heart rate and cardiac function
News in Physiological Sciences
It is well known that the neuronal projections from the brain to the heart strongly influence cardiac function, and an abnormal activity has been implicated in diseases such as cardiac arrhythmia and sudden infant death syndrome. This short review describes recent advances focused on the neurobiology of cardiac vagal neurons, utilizing cellular techniques.
