Brief description Heart failure is associated with an increase in messages from the brain that control how fast the heart beats but the factors involved remain poorly understood. This project will enable a better understanding ot the mechanisms controlling this increase in the activity of the nerves. This understanding will provide a new avenue for therapy and for the development of new treatments.
