S09 Biofeedback

The Biofeedback lesson explores the concept of biofeedback training and its effect on autonomic control of heart rate. An onscreen, thermometer-style heart rate display rises and falls with changes in heart rate, allowing students to become conscious of their heart rates. The Subject will try to influence the reading without physical movements.

Experimental Objectives

  1. Introduce the concept of biofeedback as a technique to alter autonomic tone.
  2. Measure changes in autonomic tone via heart rate.
