SEMINAR: The impact of water immersion at rest and during exercise on heart function and brain blood flow
|The impact of water immersion at rest and during exercise on heart function and brain blood flow : This seminar is part of the Centre for Water Research seminar series.
The Cardiovascular Research group at the School of Sport Science, Exercise Health at UWA are primarily interested in the beneficial effects of exercise and physical activity on cardiovascular health.
In peripheral arteries, it is known that episodic increases in blood flow induced by exercise are responsible for improvement in arterial function and health. Regular exercise also induces recurrent increases in brain blood flow, however it is unknown whether cerebrovascular benefits as a result of exercise training (improved cognitive function, decreased risk of stroke, dementia), particularly in the elderly, is due to the same action of repeated increases in blood flow through the arteries in the brain.
This is now a major point of interest for our research group. This talk will focus on recent studies from our laboratory that have investigated the effect of water immersion at rest and during exercise on brain blood flow and cardiovascular variables.
PS* This seminar is free and open to the public & no RSVP required.
