About the speaker:

Professor Vaughan Macefield, PhD, DSc 
Senior Principal Research Fellow at the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute

Vaughan Macefield

'Professor Macefield specializes in recording from single nerve fibres via microelectrodes inserted into the peripheral nerves of awake human subjects (microneurography), and is best known for developing the methodology for recording the firing properties of single, type-identified, sympathetic neurones supplying muscle and skin and, most recently, for developing the methodology for recording muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) at the same time as performing functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of the brain.'
