Heart–Brain Axis: Effects of Neurologic Injury on Cardiovascular Function

Heart–Brain Axis: Effects of Neurologic Injury on Cardiovascular Function

Pouya Tahsili-Fahadan, Romergryko G. Geocadin

Neural control of the cardiovascular system. Afferent and efferent pathways are shown in green and red lines, respectively. Some potential sites for therapeutic interventions are illustrated in the blue text boxes. The figure has been simplified to illustrate the major cortical, subcortical, and brain stem areas involved in control of the cardiovascular function. Most of the shown areas are interconnected. For anatomic details and physiological effects of the illustrated pathways, please refer to the text. [Powerpoint File]
