Sex and Autonomic Activity in Humans

Human & Exercise Physiology Human & Exercise Physiology

Organised by Jason Carter, Michigan Technological University, Houghton, USA
and Nisha Charkoudian, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, USA

Wednesday 13 July 2011
LT2 (Experimental Psychology A)

The sympathetic nervous system is central to the regulation of both short- and long-term blood pressure, and evidence has emerged demonstrating differing levels of sympathetic neural activity in men and women, and also in women at various menstrual phases. The purpose of this symposium is to comprehensively review the role of sex in neural control and autonomic regulation of humans.
