The beginning of a new era for our research group

You remember that discussion about the need to monitor more than one cerebral artery in future studies (here and here) ?

Well, today is a good day ! This is the first sight that I got when I arrived at my office this morning…

photo[1]A box from DWL USA ! Yes today is the beginning of a new era for our research group ! We now have our second monitoring probe !

photoRegional differences in cerebral autoregulation, cerebrovascular vascular reactivity to CO2, cerebral SNA, distribution of blood flow during exercise…

We can now join the party !
