Alexey Dvornikov


I am a visitor from Russia, Nizhny Novgorod State University. My PhD thesis was focused on autonomic heart regulation. My current field of research is calcium dynamics in cardiac muscle. I am studying the force-frequency relationships and strongly interested in electro-mechanical coupling in the heart. Another research project includes the investigation of automaticity and heart rate variability during adrenergic and cholinergic stimulation of heart and modeling of SAN. Now, I am learning an optical mapping in the Efimov Lab to investigate heart arrhythmia mechanisms then.
