The brain’s resonance with breathing—decelerated breathing synchronizes heart rate and slow cortical potentials

Hinterberger, Thilo ; Walter, Nike ; Doliwa, Christopher ; Loew, Thomas


Numerous methods for enhancing consciousness and well-being emphasize the role of breathing. For the first time, we have investigated the link between body rhythms and slow cortical brain dynamics during paced breathing. We present physiological data from 37 participants who performed paced breathing sessions with respiration rates (RRs) from 6 to 14 s/cycle (with 7 min for each task). Measures ...
