Welcome to the Neurovascular Research Lab at Western University

The Neurovascular Research Laboratory (NVRL)

The Neurovascular Research Laboratory is dedicated to fundamental research that studies how the autonomic nervous system integrates with cardiovascular control. Using two different facilities, studies are developed to examine the mechanistic details associated with the following research programs:

  • Sympathetic nervous system (SNS) discharge patterns
  • Mechanical properties of blood vessels
  • The cortical autonomic network
  • The integrative physiology of sympathetic and vasomotor responses.

Western provides the best student experience among Canada's leading research-intensive universities.
