To delineate the relative roles of genetic and environmental factors on physiological variations of blood pressure and heart rate, we performed 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitorings with simultaneous polygraphic sleep recordings in 28 monozygotic and 16 dizygotic healthy young male twin pairs investigated in a standardized physical and social environment. Blood pressure and heart rate were measured every 10 minutes for 24 hours. A best-fit curve based on the periodogram method was used… CONTINUE READING
