Article
Background and objective nowadays, numerous mobile applications capable of measuring the Heart Rate (HR) are continuously being launched. However, these tools do not allow to record and label the acquired HR signals while users are doing activities such as practising sports or viewing images. They do not allow to perform simultaneous HR acquisition...
Article
Full-text available
Heart rate variability (HRV) analysis is a powerful instrument that provides information about the heart conditions. However, there exist some limitations in the use of HRV in the clinical practice. Examples are the lack of reference values for healthy populations, different HR (Heart Rate) acquisition systems, and varying software packages. Other...

Background: Nowadays, the assessment of psychopathy relies on semistructured interviews plus file reviews. In order to improve the predictive validity of psychopathy at the individual level, tools that are not based on the rating of signs and symptoms are in great need. Sampling and methods: The present study was conducted in a representative sa...

Several works studied the elicitation of emotions through the exposure of individuals to relevant stimuli, using spectral analysis of Heart Rate Variability (HRV) when people are subject to emotional elicitation. If correlation exists between HRV and emotional responses, spectral analysis can be used to study emotion regulation under external stimu...

Introduction: The use of neuroscience methods, tools and techniques has become widespread in recent decades, and the prefix “neuro-” is now applied to disciplines such as the social sciences and communication as a consequence of the understanding that health and medicine are socially constructed. Method: This article analyses the impact of listenin...

Background: Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) are cardiac abnormalities that may occur in subjects with/without cardiovascular disorder. Detection is usually performed from electrocardiograms (ECGs); heart activity for a long period of time must be recorded at hospital or with ambulatory electrocardiography. An alternative with a common mo...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this work, a software package, called gHRV, and dedicated to the automatic analysis and study of the heart rate variability is presented. The software is provided with a graphical user interface, is both free and open source, and allows to perform both spectral and nonlinear analysis of several parameters related to the cardiac rhythm. To show t...

This paper describes a free software tool (VARVI) developed in our research group to facilitate the analysis of heart rate variability (HRV) in response to different visual stimuli. This tool was developed after the realization that this type of studies are becoming to be used in fields such as psychiatry, psychology and marketing and that there ar...

This work examines the use of agent technology when dealing with distributed real world problems. By means of a case study, the system analysis and design, which was done using an agent-oriented methodology, is shown. The subsequent implementation with a specific development framework was mapped onto a Multi- Agent System (MAS). Particularly, MaSE...

. During the design and development of multi-agent systems, all aspects related to interoperability among each of the individual agents, that form part of the distributed system, require special attention. This paper shows how communication agents facilitate the interoperability between the components of multi-agent systems. These agents are in cha...
