Take the Money and Run: Psychopathic Behavior in the Trust Game

Front Psychol
PMCID: 5125304
PMID: 27965606
DOI: 10.3389/fpsyg.2016.01866

[…] he ECG signal was sampled at 1000 Hz and filtered offline using a band-pass 0.5 – 50 Hz filter. R-wave detection and artifact correction were performed with the ECGLab Matlab software (). We used the KARDIA Matlab software () and custom Matlab scripts (Matlab 2013a, Mathworks Inc.) to analyze the heart period signal during the experimental session. To assess the Phasic Cardiac Responses (PCRs) to […]


HRVanalysis: A Free Software for Analyzing Cardiac Autonomic Activity

Front Physiol
PMCID: 5118625
PMID: 27920726
DOI: 10.3389/fphys.2016.00557

[…] mortality prediction studies. Several HRV analysis methods are currently available, including Holter and heart rate monitor systems and free independent software such as Kubios (Tarvainen et al., ), Kardia (Perakakis et al., ), ARTiiFACT (Kaufmann et al., ), POLYAN (Maestri and Pinna, ), RHRV (Rodriguez-Linares et al., ), ECGLab (Carvalho et al., ), and the HRV Toolkit developed by the PhysioNet […]


Inducing Sadness and Anxiousness through Visual Media: Measurement Techniques and Persistence

Front Psychol
PMCID: 4971078
PMID: 27536260
DOI: 10.3389/fpsyg.2016.01141

[…] es, ectopic beat errors, and movement artifacts were manually corrected. HR (beats per minute) was calculated from the inter-beat-intervals. Time and frequency domain HRV measures were analyzed using KARDIA () in MATLAB. The RMSSD (the square root of the mean squared differences of successive R–R intervals) was calculated as indicator of short term HRV. The High Frequency component (HF-HRV; 0.15–0 […]


Transient autonomic responses during sustained attention in high and low fit young adults

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4897647
PMID: 27271980
DOI: 10.1038/srep27556

[…] artefact correction were performed with the ECGLab Matlab software. Six participants (i.e., two high-fit and four low-fit) were excluded from further analyses due to poor signal quality. We used the KARDIA Matlab software and bespoke Matlab scripts (Matlab 2013a, Mathworks Inc.) to analyse the heart period signal at baseline and during the execution of the PVT. The average inter-beat interval (IB […]
