Title
Dynamic correlations between heart and brain rhythm during Autogenicmeditation
Description
The authors would like to thank Dr. J. H. Lee for her invaluableknowledge and guidance on autogenic meditation. This study was supportedby nonprofit research grants for integrative medicine from SK Holdingsand late chairman Jong-Hyun Choi. This study was also supported by theGlobal Frontier R&D Program on 'Human-centered Interaction forCoexistence' funded by the National Research Foundation of Korea grantfunded by the Korean Government (MEST) (NRF-M1AXA003-2011-0028367).
abstract
This study is aimed to determine significant physiological parameters of brain and heart under meditative state, both in each activities and their dynamic correlations. Electrophysiological changes in response to meditation were explored in 12 healthy volunteers who completed 8 weeks of a basic training course in autogenic meditation. Heart coherence, representing the degree of ordering in oscillation of heart rhythm intervals, increased significantly during meditation. Relative EEG alpha power and alpha lagged coherence also increased. A significant slowing of parietal peak alpha frequency was observed. Parietal peak alpha power increased with increasing heart coherence during meditation, but no such relationship was observed during baseline. Average alpha lagged coherence also increased with increasing heart coherence during meditation, but weak opposite relationship was observed at baseline. Relative alpha power increased with increasing heart coherence during both meditation and baseline periods. Heart coherence can be a cardiac marker for the meditative state and also may be a general marker for the meditative state since heart coherence is strongly correlated with EEG alpha activities. It is expected that increasing heart coherence and the accompanying EEG alpha activations, heart brain synchronicity, would help recover physiological synchrony following a period of homeostatic depletion.
