European Study Group on Cardiovascular Oscillations

Biological oscillations represent the inherent activity of living systems’ control mechanisms and, as such, their study can provide fundamental information usually difficult to obtain via standard measurement techniques


Since its creation in 1998 by Alberto Malliani, Tudor Griffith, Pontus Persson and Bernard Swynghedauw, the European Study Group on Cardiovascular Oscillations (ESGCO) aims at fostering interdisciplinary discussions about physiological states and transitions, regulatory mechanisms and clinical implications of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular oscillations in all their forms. The meeting of the ESGCO takes place every two years, and provides an unique forum for discussion and information exchange across a wide range of scientific disciplines, including medicine, biology, neuroscience, physics, mathematics, engineering and computer science.
