Abstract:In recent years, stimulation of the parasympathetic innervation of the heart has been shown to effectively influence cardiac parameters. The aim of this chapter on biohybrid systems for neurocardiology is to provide an overview of this exciting field of neurocardiac monitoring and modulation, wherby a closed loop biohybrid system is formed. First, the main characteristics of the autonomic control of the heart are described. Subsequently, approaches in stimulation, sensing, and artificial control of the parasympathetic innervation of the heart are presented. Finally, conclusions are drawn and an outlook of future developments given.
