The Fifth International Meeting on Cerebral Haemodynamic Regulation (CARNet meeting) Event

Origin: 
Date:
13 - 15 July 2015
Venue:
Chilworth Manor Hotel Southampton

Event details

The meeting will cover the broad range of regulatory physiological mechanisms that maintain brain bloodflow at appropriate levels in health and disease, and will include physiology, clinical applications and the engineering, physics and mathematical modelling that underpins mechanisms and measurements.

The conference is organised by the Cerebral Autoregulation Research Network (CARNet http://www.car-net.org/), an international multidisciplinary network including now over 100 scientists worldwide, in collaboration with the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM).

Cerebral blood flow is driven by blood pressure, arterial carbon dioxide levels, neuronal activation and cerebral metabolism, intracranial pressure, vasomotion, activity of the sympathetic nervous system, posture and other determinants. While cerebral autoregulation usually refers primarily to the physiological mechanisms that maintain blood flow during changes in blood pressure, the meeting will encompasses the wider field of cerebral haemodynamic regulation, including areas such as CO2 reactivity, neurovascular coupling and intracranial pressure control.

The conference will be held in Chilworth Manor Hotel. Conference presentations will be 13-14 July, 2015, with working meetings on 15 July, 2015.
