Course Description:
The purpose of the present study is to examine whether sympathetic and homeostatic reflexes such as the baroreflex/parasympathetic balance (LF-HRV / HF-HRV) is a better predictor of attention and executive function than HF-HRV. This is done by examining the effects of brief mindfulness and HRV biofeedback interventions on attention and executive function. 90 participants were randomly assigned a HRV biofeedback, mindfulness, or control condition, and assessed pre and post three intervention on both executive functioning. It is hypothesized that executive function is more strongly mediated by LF-HRV/HF-HRV balance than HF-HRV alone.

Learning Objectives:
Professionals who complete this webinar will:

  • Learners will be able to explain the difference between parasympathetic activity and parasympathetic and sympathetic balance in regards to cognitive functioning
  • Identify areas of executive function affected by improved HRV

Level: Introductory
Prerequisites: None. Advance preparation is not required.
Who Should Attend:Those who practice HRV biofeedback
Delivery Method: Interactive webinar using telephone and Internet technology.
CE Credits: 1.5 credits
