Cardiac Rhythm Lab

The work in our laboratory is focused on determining mechanisms of arrhythmic activity in the ventricles of the heart, neural control of cardiovascular regulation and development of image processing and machine learning tools for high throughput analysis of histologic images. Recent and ongoing studies include investigation of cardiovascular-brain interactions while listening to music; improving specificity in the use of T wave alternans in ECGs to predict risk of adverse cardiac electrical events (in collaboration with Dr. Anaya from the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine); and development of image processing tools and mathematical models for furthering our understanding of biology of T Gondii, a common infectious parasite (in collaboration with Dr. Sinai from the Department of Microbiology Immunology and Molecular Genetics).
