Voluntary Upregulation of Heart Rate Variability Through Biofeedback is Improved by Mental Contemplative Training

“Regulation of the parasympathetic nervous system, indexed through high frequency heart rate variability (HF-HRV), is indicative of physical and psychological health. However, little is known about the trainability of this capacity. We investigated the effects of a 9-month mental training program on voluntary HF-HRV upregulation, assessed with a novel biofeedback procedure.”
