Depression disturbs heart rate

...t attack. HRV measures the nervous functioning - electrical wiring, if you like - of the heart. It influences blood vessel size, blood pressure and the heart's ability to contract. A healthy heart is one with a high HRV. The fact that depression lowers HRV points to an important mind-body mechanism. Clearly, ...

New treatment for depression

...octors on an anti-depression 'pacemaker' found the electrical device can significantly improve the mental health of patients.// The pacemaker, which is implanted in a person's chest, sends intermittent signals to the left vagus nerve in the brain.
