Possible Neural Correlates between the Oculomotor and Cardiac Pacing Systems

Ghahari, Alireza ;   Cheng, Michael

The purpose of this presentation is to draw attention to the potential insights gained by comparing the neural mechanisms controlling the oculomotor and cardiac pacing systems. In view of the rapidly increasing health problems of cardiac arrhythmia particularly among aging populations, the goal is to promote studies examining the neural control substrates. This can lead to innovative strategies for research in cardiac arrhythmia.
