Abstract

This review highlights the links between psychological stress and the neurocircuitry of cardiac-brain interactions leading to arrhythmias. The role of efferent and afferent connections in the heart-brain axis are considered with the mechanisms by which emotional responses promote arrhythmias illustrated by inherited cardiac conditions. Novel therapeutic targets for intervention in the autonomic nervous system are considered.
