Abstract Cardiac manifestations of neurologic diseases are common in clinical practice. There are numerous anatomic and pathophysiologic links between the normal and abnormal function of both systems. There are a number of brain-heart interactions which affect the care of patients as well as help guide therapeutic development. This is exemplified in the area of vascular neurology where knowledge of the brain-heart connection is essential not only for bedside management but where collaborative efforts between neurology and cardiology are key in developing new strategies for ischemic stroke prevention and treatment, atrial fibrillation, and interventional techniques. This chapter will focus on cardiac manifestations of neurologic disease, with special emphasis on vascular and intensive care neurology, epilepsy, and neurodegenerative and peripheral nervous system diseases. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
