Alcohol and Neural Cardiovascular Control in Binge Drinkers

Study Description

Alcohol and Neural Cardiovascular Control in Binge Drinkers

This study evaluates the impact of evening alcohol consumption on sympathetic activity and baroreflex function in binge drinkers. Our central hypothesis is that evening binge alcohol consumption will lead to sympathetic overactivity and blunted baroreflex function.
