Abstract

Heart rate variability (HRV) is a measure of variations in the heart rate. Over the last 25 years, HRV analysis has became popular as a non-invasive research and clinical tool for indirectly investigating both cardiac and autonomic nervous system (ANS) function in both health and disease area. How the musical rhythmic characteristics, tempo and complexity, affect the performance of HRV is studied in this work. By understanding the relationship between music and the function of ANS, the novel biomedical entertainment platform is proposed and used for relaxation.
