  • 2 December 2000
In the present paper we present the outlines of a model that integrates autonomic, attentional, and affective systems into a functional and structural network that may help to guide us in ourExpand

  • 1 February 2009
The intimate connection between the brain and the heart was enunciated by Claude Bernard over 150 years ago. In our neurovisceral integration model we have tried to build on this pioneering work. InExpand

The perseverative cognition hypothesis: a review of worry, prolonged stress-related physiological activation, and health.
Perseverative cognition, as manifested in worry and rumination, is a common response to stress, but biopsychological models of stress and health have largely ignored it. These models have generallyExpand

Heart Rate Variability, Prefrontal Neural Function, and Cognitive Performance: The Neurovisceral Integration Perspective on Self-regulation, Adaptation, and Health
BackgroundIn the present paper, we describe a model of neurovisceral integration in which a set of neural structures involved in cognitive, affective, and autonomic regulation are related to heartExpand

The relationship of autonomic imbalance, heart rate variability and cardiovascular disease risk factors.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. The understanding of the risk factors for CVD may yield important insights into the prevention, etiology, course,Expand

The role of vagal function in the risk for cardiovascular disease and mortality
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. The understanding of the risk factors for CVD may yield important insights into the prevention, etiology, course,Expand

Neural correlates of heart rate variability during emotion
The vagal (high frequency [HF]) component of heart rate variability (HRV) predicts survival in post-myocardial infarction patients and is considered to reflect vagal antagonism of sympatheticExpand

Autonomic characteristics of generalized anxiety disorder and worry
Autonomic characteristics of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and worry were examined using measures of heart period variability. The cardiorespiratory responses of 34 GAD clients and 32 nonanxiousExpand

Heart Rate Variability and Cardiac Vagal Tone in Psychophysiological Research – Recommendations for Experiment Planning, Data Analysis, and Data Reporting
Psychophysiological research integrating heart rate variability (HRV) has increased during the last two decades, particularly given the fact that HRV is able to index cardiac vagal tone. CardiacExpand

Beyond heart rate variability: vagal regulation of allostatic systems.
The autonomic nervous system (ANS) plays a role in a wide range of somatic and mental diseases. Whereas the role of the ANS in the regulation of the cardiovascular system seems evident, its role inExpand
