Brief description This project aims to understand how pathways in the brain, that control blood pressure, develop 'memory' after repeated episodes of low oxygen, as occurs in sleep apnoea. Based on the assumption that long-lasting excitatory actions are responsible for this change in nerve behaviour this project will increase knowledge about how the brain controls blood pressure.
