Archived Seminar: The Nervous Heart: Insights into Autonomic-Mediated Arrhythmias
Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar presented by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC
About This Lecture
Cardiac function is fine-tuned by the autonomic nervous system. Emerging clinical evidence suggests that either too much or too little sympathetic nerve input to the heart can lead to lethal cardiac arrhythmias. This talk will discuss sympathetic remodeling following myocardial infarction and the role of sympathetic activity in leading to ventricular arrhythmias. Using animal models of myocardial infarction, in vivo neuro-modulatory approaches, and novel imaging techniques, we have probed the interplay between myocardial and nerve remodeling in contributing to cardiac arrhythmias.
This is a free event hosted by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute and co-sponsored by the institute's Center for Heart and Reparative Medicine Research. The Fralin Biomedical Research Institute Pioneers in Biomedical Research Program offers the expertise of a range of scientists who are exploring frontiers in biomedical research. These seminars are open to Virginia Tech and Carilion Clinic faculty, students, and staff.
