Neuro Cardiology & Strokes

Neurocardiology is the study of neurophysiological, neurological and neuroanatomical aspects of cardiology especially including the neurological origins of cardiac disorders. It also refers to the pathophysiological interplays of the nervous and cardiovascular systems.  The effects of stress on the heart are studied in terms of the heart's interactions with the two peripheral nervous system and central nervous system. Scientific issues in neurocardiology include hypoxic-ischemic brain injury, neurogenic stress cardiomyopathy, cerebral embolism and encephalopathy, neurologic sequelae of cardiac and thoracic surgery, cardiac interventions, and cardiovascular findings in patients with primary neurological disease.

A stroke is a "brain attack". It can appear to anyone at any time when poor blood flow to an area of brain and results in cell death. When this happens brain cells are dispossessed of oxygen and begin to die. When brain cells die during a stroke it controls ability by that area of the brain such as memory and muscle control is lost.
