The heart is one of the most significant organs in the human body, because it is one of the leading ways for connecting us to each other and the Life. Major role of the heart is to pump blood to all the systems of the body. The brain is one of the greatest complex and superlative organs in the human body. The heart-brain connection is dominant, with each strongly reliant on the other. A stroke is related to a heart attack, but it affects the brain. A heart attack happens when blood suddenly can't get through to a part of your heart.

According to researchers, they have examined the evidence on factors that affect our blood vessels and heart health and shown that they also affect brain health. Heart is the foremost cause of death in America. Stroke ranks fifth, and it is also a leading cause of severe, long-term disability. Vascular—blood vessel—problems include atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis. Both are well-known contributors to heart disease. These same systems can also harm brain function by interfering with the stable supply of oxygen-rich blood that sustains brain cells.
A healthy brain, maintained by sufficient blood flow, is essential for living a longer and fuller life. Brain health allows thought, prearranged action and emotional influences that influence the daily lives and growth of individuals, families and societies.

Cardiology is a branch of medicine dealing with conditions of the heart both human and animal. The field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology. Heart mechanism as a pump that impulses blood to the organs, tissues, and cells of your body. Blood delivers oxygen and nutrients to every cell and removes the carbon dioxide and waste products made by those cells. Blood is distributed from heart to the rest of the body through a complex network of arteries, arterioles, and capillaries. Blood is returned to your heart through venules and veins. The one-way system carries blood to all parts of body. This process of blood flow within body is called circulation.

A stroke arises when the supply of blood to the brain is either interrupted or reduced. When this happens, the brain does not get enough oxygen or nutrients, and brain cells start to die. On the basis of stoke, 25% of all ischemic strokes are cardioembolic strokes, and the source of emboli and clots are formed in the heart, dislodged in the heart and then travel to the brain. Of the 25% of ischemic strokes, 45% of those are due to atrial fibrillation. The 3rd leading source of death after cancer and heart disease is Stroke, so focusing on the epidemiology of stroke and risk factors. Stroke can be of different types. Aortic dissection arises when an injury to the innermost layer of the aorta permits blood to flow between the layers of the aortic wall, forcing the layers apart and aortic dissection is a serious condition in which there is a tear in the wall of the major artery carrying blood out of the heart (aorta).

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure (BPH), is a long-term medical disorder in which arterial pressure is steadily elevated in the arteries. RAP is a common disorder in which the long-term strength of blood against the walls of the arteries is high enough to eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease. Arterial hypertension usually progresses for many years, and affects just about everyone afterwards. High blood pressure usually has no symptoms, but it can cause serious problems such as stroke, heart failure, heart attack and kidney failure. You can control high blood pressure by adopting healthy lifestyle habits such as exercise and DASH diet and taking medication if necessary.
Obesity is a condition where a person has accumulated so much body fat that it could have a negative effect on their health. Hypertension refers to the pressure exerted by the blood on the inner walls of the arteries. Obesity increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. The individual session in this area focuses on obesity, its interaction with the outcomes of hypertension, risk factors, treatment and management of cardiovascular disease. Arterial hypertension related with obesity is categorized by activation of the sympathetic system, initiation of the renin-angiotensin system and retention of sodium, among various abnormalities.

The term “neurocardiology” denotes to physiologic, neuroanatomical and pathophysiological interactions of the nervous and cardiovascular systems. The effects of stress on the heart are studied in terms of the heart's interactions with both the peripheral nervous system and the central nervous system. It is an emerging field in medicine over the last decade. The constant communication between the heart and the brain has proved invaluable to interdisciplinary fields of neurological and cardiac diseases. The neural rhythms deliver information on static state conditions of healthy individuals. Variations in the neural rhythms provide evidence that a problem is present regarding physiologic regulation and help physicians determine the underlying condition quicker based on the given symptoms.

Neurohormones are an assortment of many chemical messengers of cardiac and extra cardiac origin that are found at high circulating levels in adults with chronic heart failure (CHF). Neurohormonal systems are normally stimulated under conditions of acute volume depletion, activated by cardiac output and blood pressure. However, prolonged and chronic activation of these systems may result in progressive ventricular remodeling and worsening of heart failure, as occurs in congestive heart failure (CHF).

Echocardiography is an analysis procedure that utilizes high frequency sound waves to produce vital images of the heart. The image is commonly known as an echocardiogram. This test acknowledges monitoring the functioning of heart and its valves. The pictures can help to spot the blood clots in the heart, fluid in the sac around the heart, problems with the aorta. An echocardiogram is primary key in determining the cardiac health. It can also reveal heart defects in unborn babies.
Brain imaging or Neuroimaging is the use of several techniques to either directly or indirectly image the structure, function of the nervous system. Neural tissue engineering can be used to understand, repair, replace, enhance, or otherwise exploit the properties of neural systems and Neuro computing is the study of brain function in terms of the information treating properties of the structures that make up the nervous system. Current researches in the field of neuro engineering include: Neural imaging and neural networking, Biomolecular therapies in neural regeneration, Neurorobotics, Biological neural networking.

Oncology is a branch of medicine that involves the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer and tumours. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 20,000 malignant tumors of the brain or spinal cord are diagnosed each year in the U.S. Both adults and children are included in these statistics. Cardio-oncology also known as Cardiovascular Oncology is an integrative field of medicine, used to study the molecular and clinical modifications in cardiovascular system during the treatment of cancer especially chemo and targeted therapy. Neurological cancer, or cancer of the brain, is any form of cancer that originates within the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) and neurological cancer is founded on numerous causes containing a patient’s overall health and medical history; the type, location, and size of the tumor; the extent of the condition; and other individual factors. The high risk of cancer increases with the increase in age. Tumors that originate in other parts of the body and spread to the brain are called metastatic, tumors or secondary and metastatic tumors maximum occur in patients with melanoma which is a type of skin cancer, lung, or breast cancer, although any tumor can spread to the central nervous system.
