The cardiac autonomic system post  brain damage

Investigating the cardiac autonomic system post  brain damage

Stroke, traumatic brain injury and cerebral palsy are the most common causes of physical disability. Autonomic instability is common phenomenon post brain damage, with signs and symptoms of hyperstimulation of the sympathetic nervous system. We study the connections between physical disability and the cardiac autonomic regulation system. We assess the cardiac autonomic response to different stimulus and its immediate and long-lasting adaptation to different physical training protocols.
