About the Author

Dr. Taylor is an integrative physiologist with a research focus on the human cardiovascular system and the effects of aging, exercise, and pathophysiology. He has conducted clinical/translational research on cardiovascular autonomic control at Harvard Medical School for over twenty years. His work has ranged across various pathophysiologic conditions, including chronic fatigue syndrome, disorders of sleep, and traumatic brain injury. A current primary area of research is exercise for those with spinal cord injuries to prevent inactivity-related cardiovascular deficits.
