A 0.15-Hz rhythm band in cutaneous blood oscillations in awake human subjects was studied in cardiovascular-respiratory time series of five subjects relaxing naïvely or practicing hypnoid relaxation (autogenic training, or AT). Time series analysis used nonlinear algorithms, time-frequency distribution (TFD), postevent scan (PES) method, and linear fast Fourier transform (FFT) algorithm. This 0.15-Hz rhythm band caused phase synchronization with respiration at 1:2, 1:1, and 2:1 integer number… CONTINUE READING
