Cardiovascular and Neural Adjustments to Exercise in Chronic Disease States

Exercise elicits multiple physiological adjustments that serve to redistribute arterial blood flow to contracting skeletal muscles. Several studies have shown that these adjustments are impaired by chronic disease and result in complications ranging from exercise intolerance to adverse cardiovascular events. The Editors of AJP-Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology extend an invitation to submit original research articles related to the cardiovascular and neural adjustments to exercise in chronic disease states. Topics within the scope of this Call include but are not limited to:

  • Human and in vivo animal studies contrasting the neural mechanisms evoking the cardiovascular adjustments to exercise in health with the neural mechanisms evoking the cardiovascular adjustments to exercise in diseases/conditions such as peripheral artery disease, hypertension, heart failure, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, and obesity.
  • Cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate the cardiovascular adjustments to exercise in both health and disease.
  • Interventions and treatments to prevent adverse cardiovascular events occurring during exercise.
  • Cardiovascular and neural adjustments to exercise before and after exercise training in disease.
  • The role of sex in cardiovascular control during exercise in health and disease.
  • The interaction between aging and disease on the cardiovascular and neural adjustments to exercise.
  • Novel methods to determine cardiovascular and neural dysfunction during exercise.

Manuscripts should be submitted online via eJournal Press. Manuscripts can be submitted anytime, but to be eligible for inclusion in this Call for Papers, they must be submitted by April 1, 2019. During the online submission process, under the “Keywords & Special Sections” tab, please use the “Category” dropdown menu and select: “Call for Papers: 2018 Cardiovascular and Neural Adjustments to Exercise in Chronic Disease States.” All manuscripts accepted from this Call for Papers will be included in a unique online article collection, further highlighting this important topic. The article collection may also include specially commissioned Review articles related to the topic. Dr. Audrey Stone will serve as the Guest Editor for this Call.
