Neuro Cardiology and Brain tumours

Neurocardiology defines the physiologic, neuroanatomical and pathophysiological interactions of the cardiovascular and CNS systems. The mechanisms of stress on the heart are studied in terms of the heart's interactions with both the peripheral nervous system and the CNS. The Heart Brain communications has proved invaluable to interdisciplinary fields of cardiac and  neurological diseases. Variations in the neural signals give evidence that an problematic affect is present regarding physiologic regulation and help the concerned physician to determine the condition. Neuro Cardiology highlights the present session about cardiac afferent mechanisms which is responsible for cardiovascular reflexes as well as the efferent motor neurons. A great deal of research has been going on to delineate the neuro-anatomical and functional organization of the autonomic nervous system where the functions of the heart are controlled. A comprehensive mechanism of the neurons that are innervating the heart in normal and diseased state. The overview of neuron regulates the heart and results in some major clinical conditions such as arrhythmias and heart failure.
