The Best HRV Course You'll Find Online
We created Labfront Academy to make quality educational materials more accessible to the research community, and Dr. Andrew Ahn’s master class on Heart Rate Variability is as high quality as it gets. Dr. Ahn chronicles the evolution of HRV in medical research over the past 50 years - from a marker of the autonomic nervous system to a marker of general well-being and mental health.
This in-depth course touches upon the various HRV measures (time domain, frequency-domain, and non-linear), their utilization in clinical and basic science studies, and their technical and methodological limitations. Importantly, the course provides the foundational context from which citizen scientists can begin exploring HRV with a broader appreciation for its applications.
Quite possibly the best video [series] on HRV that I've been able to find. A clear and well-structured overview that nicely integrates the history, physiology, and metrics. I plan to share it with my research assistants as a great introduction to a rather complex topic. - YouTube Viewer
