Heart rate variability and the dynamic nature of the retinal microvasculature: providing insight into the brain-retina-heart link: the SABPA study
Controversy exists regarding the contribution of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) to the retinal microvasculature’s autoregulatory capacities. It was demonstrated that mean retinal vessel responses to systemic sympathetic ...
Brain-derived-neurotrophic-factor, dynamic retinal vessel responses during flicker light and stroke risk: the SABPA study
Assessment of the retinal vessels’ structure and function provides an automated and objective approach to noninvasively assess the condition of the cerebral microvasculature and indicates susceptibility for stroke. ...
Stress and neurovascular coupling: a red flag? The SABPA study
Neuronal hyperactivity mediates communication between neurons and blood vessels (neurovascular coupling) and increases susceptibility for retinal ganglion cells functionality. Contrastingly, monoamine depletion and ...
Retinal vasculature reactivity during flicker light provocation, cardiac stress and stroke risk in Africans: the SABPA study
Structural and functional similarities exist between the retinal, cerebral and, as previously suggested, the coronary microvasculature. Retinal microvascular structure and functionality (in response to flicker-light-indu ...
