Conference on the Brain-Heart connection


Conference: Brain and Heart Diseases: Connections, Risks and Impacts on Society.

Organised by Craig Goergen, Fulbright Research Scholar from Purdue University, hosted by l'Université de Montpellier

An emerging field of research focuses on the interaction between the brain and the heart. While both brain and heart diseases are independently leading causes of death in the world, the relationship between the two remains largely unknown. There is, however, mounting clinical and experimental evidence that suggests a relationship between some forms of brain damage and heart dysfunction, especially considering the numerous nerves, blood vessels, and signaling molecules that connect these two important organs. Thus, it could be clinically important to determine if and to what extent heart failure can be triggered by brain injury and vice versa.

The purpose of this symposium is to bring together researchers interested in heart and brain health in order to improve understanding of similar underlying mechanisms, develop collaborations, and increase public awareness.
