Sympathetic nervous flow to the vasculature plays a critical role in control of regional blood flow; however, traditional processing methods of multifiber recordings cannot reliably discriminate physiologically irrelevant information from actual nerve activity, and alternative wavelet methods suffer from subjectivity and lack of a well-specified model.

BACKGROUND Increased carotid artery intima-media thickness (IMT) is a non-invasive marker of systemic arterial disease. Increased IMT has been associated with atherosclerosis, abnormal arterial mechanics, myocardial infarction, and stroke. Given evidence of a relationship between cardiovascular health and attention-executive-psychomotor functioning, the(More)
The state-dependent portion of cardio-vagal baroreflex control is called baroreflex hyteresis: we observe hysteresis when RR interval and carotid diameter depend on both the direction and value of arterial pressure. The elasticity of arterial walls, as well as the responsiveness of central command reset controls the real-time pattern of neural outflow,(More)
