OBJECTIVES This study assesses the information transfer through the spontaneous baroreflex (i.e. through the pathway linking systolic arterial pressure to heart period) during an experimental condition soliciting baroreflex (i.e. head-up tilt). METHODS The information transfer was calculated as the conditional entropy of heart period given systolic arterial pressure using a mutual neighbor approach and uniform quantization. The information transfer was monitored as a function of the… CONTINUE READING
