Abstract

The heart beat data recorded from samples before and during meditation are analyzed using two different scaling analysis methods. These analyses revealed that meditation severely affects the long range correlation of heart beat of a normal heart. Moreover, it is found that meditation induces periodic behavior in the heart beat. The complexity of the heart rate variability is quantified using multiscale entropy analysis and recurrence analysis. The heart beat during meditation is found to be more complex.
