The Master Controller in Brain That Regulates The Heart

Teacher Insights

Researchers of Macquarie University have identified brain cells that regulate the flow of blood from the heart.

Although pumping of the heart enables circulation of blood across the body, it is regulated by the brain. The cells are located in the medulla oblongata that connects to multiple cardiovascular targets.


Different activities performed by humans which require varying intensity of blood flow. This regulation is vital for our survival as huge shifts in blood flow when left unchecked can be damaging. The scientists have also found out that the master regulator is capable of controlling the heart as well as the blood flow.
