Abstract
Purpose This study seeks an inexpensive, non-invasive, and easily reproducible measure of autonomic activity, which could greatly advance mind-body research and treatment. Specific aims of this study were to: explore the utility of selected physiological measures as a gauge of autonomic function; confirm the usefulness of Stroop and Math as stressors; and explore the utility of this testing protocol for changes over time.
