Vineet Chitravanshi, PhD

New Jersey Medical School

Assistant Professor, Department of Neurosurgery

Dr. Chitravanshi’s s lab focuses on the role of medullary nuclei controlling cardiovascular regulation especially, the blood pressure, heart rate, and sympathetic activity after the traumatic brain injury in rats. His scientific experience includes over 25-years in which he has studied a wide array of topics such as central control of cardiovascular and respiratory functions, identification of neurotransmitters in different cardiovascular and respiratory reflex mechanisms (e.g., baroreceptor; chemoreceptor; and cardiopulmonary reflexes), spinal control of cardiovascular and respiratory functions and neural mechanisms in hypertension using multi-disciplinary approach (microinjection, neuronal recordings, pressure microinjection on to single neurons and immunohistochemistry). Dr. Chitravanshi has published several papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals.


Research Interests:

  • Neural control of central cardiovascular regulation.
  • Traumatic brain injury: Neural pathways and mechanisms involved in mediating cardiovascular changes/regulation.
