Objective: the autonomic nervous system dysfunctions following subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) are common in neurosurgical clinical practice. the aim of the study is to investigate the effect of Asian neuroscientists on the studies of autonomic nervous system dysfunction following experimental subarachnoid hemorrhage. Methods: A systematic search was conducted using the MEDLINE and Web of Science databases for studies pertaining to SAH and autonomic nervous system dysfunction. the searched terms contained "experimental subarachnoid hemorrhage,'' "autonomic nervous system,'' and "Ganglion.'' Results: There are many animal studies because the live human brain vessels cannot be used in investigations. the considerable efforts have been made to investigate the effect of SAH on the autonomic nervous system in laboratory animals. Seventy-four studies were published by various authors. Most of the articles came from Asian Countries 49 studies (66.2% of the total studies). the most preferred animals were rabbits (in 43 studies, 58.1% of the total studies). Conclusion: Asian neuroscientists published enormous contributions in SAH-related autonomic nervous system dysfunction. It was shown that there is a great interest of Asian neuroscientists for autonomic nervous system changes secondary to SAH.
