Participants sought: How does the brain control blood pressure in hypertension?

We are seeking participants for our study, which is undertaking the functional identification of cortical and subcortical sites responsible for neurogenic hypertension in humans. 

That is, we are looking at how the brain controls blood pressure in hypertension.

New proteins discovered in brain injury

A team from Monash University’s Department of Neuroscience in Melbourne, Australia, collaborating with the Monash Proteomics and Metabolomics Facility, has found new proteins affected by brain injury which may represent new biomarkers, or biological indicators, of injury. 

It remains a significant clinical challenge to accurately predict long-term outcomes for a patient who sustains a severe traumatic brain injury.
