Behavioural, autonomic and neuroendocrine mechanisms regulating homeostasis: a lifelong perspectives


This symposium will focus on integrated autonomic, neuroendocrine and behavioral mechanisms that control the homeostasis of body fluids, energy balance and cardiovascular physiology. The event aims to promote a meeting with national and international researchers to discuss research topics in this area, emphasizing the challenges, advances and perspectives physiology of the third millennium. The symposium aims to bring leading scientists, young researchers in basic and applied sciences as well as attract undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral from Brazil and other countries. The symposium will provide a forum for discussion among experts in the field of integrative approaches and use of cutting edge techniques in molecular biology, cardiovascular physiology, renal, endocrine, genetic manipulation and behavioral analysis. Many of the participants are already conducting scientific activities in collaboration, thanks to the joint initiative of the Research Councils United Kingdom (RCUK) and the Support from Foundation of São Paulo (FAPESP, Process 2011/52108-4 and 2011/51410-9). Thus, this symposium will be a valuable opportunity to review the results (progress) during the term of this thematic project and set new goals for the future of these collaborations. Among the themes that have benefited from the RCUK-FAPESP project and will benefit from this symposium include: 1) Programming fetal and neonatal; 2) Control of electrolyte homeostasis in aging; 3) Aging and autonomic and neuroendocrine dysfunction; 4) Impact of physical exercise on autonomic function in health and disease; 5) transcriptomics analysis and hypothalamic nuclei of the brainstem involved in homeostatic processes; 6) physiological validation of known and unpublished genes in controlling homeostatic functions; 7) neuroendocrine disorders in inflammation and sepsis; 8) Integration of respiratory and sympathetic pathways in animal models of hypoxia and hypertension.
