Autonomic nervous system dysfunction is a common complication of ischemic stroke. Clinical and experimental data indicate hemispheric lateralization in the control of autonomic activity. The insular cortex has also been shown to play a crucial role in the central autonomic network. The aim of this study was to assess cardio-autonomic dysfunction in patients with ischemic insular versus non-insular cortex infarction, and to demonstrate a possible lateralization in autonomic activity mediated by… CONTINUE READING
