APS Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology

New Insights into Autonomic Regulation in Health and Disease

Featured Topic — Thursday, April 29, 2021 — 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM — Virtual Session, Room APS-13
Neural Control and Autonomic Regulation Section — Chair: Frédérique Yiannikouris — Co-Chair: Yumei Feng Earley

This Featured Topic is aimed at discussing new players involved in autonomic dysfunction during pathophysiological conditions including obesity, diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular diseases and to highlight novel molecular mechanism involved in autonomic regulation with an special emphasis on cross-talk between autonomic network and other tissues, obesity-hypertension, and neuro-cardiovascular disease
