Aarhus CTH Meeting 2014

The Aarhus CTH Meeting 2014 brings together experts from within neuroscience, vascular physiology, neurovascular coupling, neurovascular diseases, acoustic and optical imaging, modeling of the microcirculation, neurology and neuroimaging to discuss the role of capillaries in the coupling of hemodynamics to the metabolic demands of tissue, and in disease.

The Aarhus CTH Meeting 2014 takes place at Aarhus University Hospital
Monday 15 December - Wednesday 17 December 2014.
