Abstract

Exercise training is increasingly promoted for physical and mental health and represents a major factor in both primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular (CV) diseases. The beneficial effects of exercise, in part, can be ascribed to adaptations of neural CV regulation through several mechanisms. In this article, we summarize how exercise training affects neural CV regulation and outline the plasticity of neural network in the continuum from cardiac patients to elite athletes.
