Stroke is the second cause of death and the first of disability.
Stroke, modifying adrenergic tone, can lead to an increased blood pressure variability, myocardial injury, EKG abnormality and arrhythmias.
Furthermore, ANS seems to be involved in the modulation of immune system, of inflammation and of metabolism.
Autonomic abnormalities seem to be more frequent when the Insula is damaged.
Variability of RR interval analysis (heart rate variability, HRV) assesses the sympathetic-vagal balance, which modulates the Sinus activity. The reduction of its oscillatory pattern or of its sensitivity to a determinate stimulation can be a prognostic cardiovascular event predictor.
Aim: to assess the association between ischaemic stroke and autonomic abnormalities and, eventually, correlations between morbidity, neurological injury and mortality.

The Board will evaluate the scientific -professional curriculum, and any other evidence provided which is relevant for the proposed research(eg.Ph.D, Graduate Diploma, post-graduate courses in Italy or abroad, professional qualification obtained through state examinations, documented research at public or private institutions, grants or assignments both in Italy and abroad)
The selection evaluates the scientific-professional curriculum and the scientific productivity of the candidate as evident in the documents accompanying the application;it is based on the criteria established by the board, and on the outcomes of an interview in order to assess the suitability of the candidate for the proposed research programm.
To better plan and organise their stay in a foreign European country, researchers and their families can also benefit of the free and personalised assistance offered by the EURAXESS Services Centres, a network of more than 200 centres located in 40 different European countries.
