About this Research Topic
This Research Topic focuses on autonomic dysfunction, both central and peripheral, in the clinical settings of heart failure and renal disease, with papers extending from molecular to clinical investigations. There is growing interest in the mechanisms driving autonomic dysfunction in heart failure and renal disease because of the recognition that this activity has direct detrimental effects, and that there is a need for novel treatments targeting both hypertension and target end organ damage. Recent developments in renal denervation are an example of this. Further, heart disease, renal disease and autonomic dysfunction can be linked under the umbrella of a number of different disease states including obesity, diabetes and depression.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
