Lecture theatre to be confirmed

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.
