Correction to: Heart rate variability, the dynamic nature of the retinal microvasculature and cardiac stress: providing insight into the brain–retina–heart link: the SABPA study

Since the online publication of this article, the authors have noticed that the conclusion to the abstract contains an error. The correct abstract conclusion should read as follows:

FLIP elicited increased SNS activity and modulation in this bi-ethnic cohort. In Africans, decreased HRV during FLIP accompanied arteriolar and venular dilatory responses and elevated systemic levels of cTnT, implying that the SNS exerted a significant effect on the smooth muscle tone of the retinal vasculature. Disrupted retinal autoregulation may imply general autonomic nervous system dysfunction; exemplifying central control by the brain on all systemic regulatory functions, across different vascular beds.

The authors apologise for any inconvenience caused.
