Profile Introduction

Neural control of cardiovascular and respiratory systems during exercise

Research Interests

The research performed in this laboratory has two major thrusts. The first is to determine the mechanical and metabolic factors that stimulate group III and IV muscle afferents during exercise. The second is to determine how central command and the exercise pressor reflex differentially effect the sympathetic outflow to visceral and somatic vascular beds.
