Cross-section of a human peroneal nerve with a microelectrode overlaid

The primary focus of this laboratory is the study of human cardiovascular and cerebrovascular regulatory mechanisms. Specific emphasis areas include associations among cardiovagal baroreflexes, sympathetic baroreflexes, and dynamic cerebral autoregulatory mechanisms during orthostatic and simulated orthostatic stress. Research focuses on these associations, and other autonomic neural feedback systems that contribute to stable blood pressure and brain blood flow under a variety of acute and chronic conditions -- including exercise conditioning, exercise deconditioning, and simulated hemorrhage.
