APS Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology



Controversies in Vagal Physiology

Symposium — Tuesday, April 27, 2021 — 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM — Virtual Session, Room APS-13
CNS Section — Chair: R. Alberto Travagli — Co-Chair: Carie Boychuk

The vagus nerve plays multiple roles in pathophysiology spanning from the control of gastrointestinal, respiratory and cardiovascular functions, to the modulation of anti-inflammatory and depression states, and it may be a conduit for the spread of ingested patogens.
