Summary of "Heart rate variability monitoring for emotion and disorders of emotion."

Emotion is composed of cognitive processing, physiological response and behavioral reaction. Heart rate variability (HRV) refers to the fluctuations between consecutive heartbeat cycles, which is considered as non-invasive method for evaluating cardiac autonomic function. HRV analysis plays an important role in emotional study and detection. In this paper, the physiological foundation of HRV is briefly described, and then the relevant literatures about the HRV-based emotion studies for the performances of HRV in different emotions, emotion recognition, the evaluation of emotional disorders, HRV biofeedback, as well as the HRV-based emotion analysis and management enhanced by the wearable devices are reviewed. It is suggested that HRV is an effective tool for the measurement and regulation of emotional response with a broad application prospect.
