Summary of Studies
In our laboratory, we are studying mechanisms of cardiovascular and respiratory regulation by the central nervous system.
Cardiovascular Regulation
Cardiovascular regulation by the central nervous system plays crucial roles in homeostasis. Disorder of this system causes serious problems in a living body. Despite this, it has been remained that lots of unknown mechanisms in the cardiovascular center. In order to investigate these mechanisms, we are electrophysiologically approaching to mechanisms of cardiovascular regulation by the cardiovascular center using in vivo preparation and in situ preparation (arterially perfused preparation) of rodents. At present, we are especially studying the chemosensitive mechanism of neurons in the cardiovascular center and cardiovascular diseases which is induced by disorder of the chemosensitive mechanism.
Cardiovascular Regulation
Respiratory Regulation
Respiratory regulation by the central nervous system plays crucial roles in homeostasis. In our laboratory, we are electrophysiologically approaching to mechanisms of respiratory regulation by the cardiovascular center using in vivo preparation and in situ preparation (arterially perfused preparation) of rodents. At present, we are especially studying the relationship between the cardiovascular and the respiratory centers (cardiorespiratory coupling) and diseases which is induced by disorder of the relationship.
