Our laboratory is devoted to the study of chemoreflex and baroreflex regulation of cardio-respiratory function in health and exercise and how these reflexes are altered in diseases such as heart failure. Much of our effort is devoted to exploring the cellular and molecular mechanisms of sensory transduction in cardiovascular chemoreceptor and baroreceptor nerves. In particular, we are interested in the characteristics of certain types of mechano- and chemo-sensitive channels identified in these sensory neurons. Members of our lab carry out neurophysiological experiments using a variety of techniques.
