NCCAM Complementary and Integrative Medicine Research Lecture
Richard Sloan, Ph.D., Nathaniel Wharton Professor of Behavioral Medicine, Columbia University; David S. Goldstein, M.D., Ph.D., Chief, Clinical Neurocardiology Section, Division of Intramural Research, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, National Institutes of Health
Dr. Sloan's principal work focuses on identifying the autonomic nervous system mechanisms linking psychological risk factors such as depression, hostility, and anxiety to heart disease. Research studies addressing this include determining whether reducing hostility and anger, by cognitive-behavioral treatment, enhances cardiac autonomic control and examining the impact of aerobic training on neurogenesis.
Dr. Goldstein's research interests are in catecholamine systems, clinical autonomic disorders, and scientific integrative medicine. The Clinical Neurocardiology Section, which he founded and directs, carries out mainly patient-oriented research about disorders of brain regulation of the cardiovascular system. The research emphasizes diseases of the autonomic nervous system in which the sympathetic nervous system or catecholamines play prominent roles, such as autonomic failure syndromes and neurogenetic conditions featuring abnormal catecholamine synthesis or metabolism.
The Complementary and Integrative Medicine Consult Service lecture series sponsored by NCCAM provides NIH clinical center staff with opportunity to learn more about how the integration of various complementary and alternative medicine treatments can affect approaches in the research and practice for medicine
