Link – Proposing a convolutional neural network for stress assessment by means of derived heart rate from functional near infrared spectroscopy. Abstract BACKGROUND: Stress is known as one of the major factors threatening human health. A large number of studies have been performed in order to either assess or relieve stress by analyzing the brain […]

Biomarkers of transcutaneous cervical vagal nerve stimulation

Link – Quantifying acute physiological biomarkers of transcutaneous cervical vagal nerve stimulation in the context of psychological stress. Abstract BACKGROUND: Stress is associated with activation of the sympathetic nervous system, and can lead to lasting alterations in autonomic function and in extreme cases symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Vagal nerve stimulation (VNS) is a […]
