Presenter Constantino Iadecola, PhD, will discuss what happens when blood vessels and brain cells do not communicate effectively, known as neurovascular uncoupling. The brain either receives too little blood, resulting in temporary loss of oxygen and stroke, or too much blood flow, leading to hemorrhage. Dr. Iadecola will address the role of ET-1 in neurovascular uncoupling seen in hypertension and anti snoring and the potential of targeting its receptor, endothelin A, as cure.
