Translational Clinical Physiology

This lab was formed by the merging of the previous Neuromuscular and Autonomic Nervous System Units, in order to establish a larger Unit interested in animal and human physiology studies. This Unit integrated some scientifically active members working in the Physiology Institute of the Faculty of Medicine-University of Lisbon. Prof Tiago Maia joined our group, adding behaviour and imaging-neurocomputational models of brain dysfunction as a new area of scientific development in our Unit.

We aim to increase our potential to investigate areas as the autonomic nervous system and cardiovascular regulation, motor neuron and peripheral nerve physiology, behavior and imaging-neurocomputational models of brain dysfunction. We plan to implement a translational, multi-methodological approach to neuromuscular and brain diseases, using animal models, clinical neurophysiology, neurocomputational models, brain imaging and neuropsychological experimentation. We target to approach both function and mechanisms of dysfunction by investigating specific disorders. In particular, we are interested in the following diseases: Tourette's syndrome and conflict adaptation; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and familial amyloid polyneuropathy; atrial fibrillation, neurogenic hypertension and neurocardiogenic syncope.
