Get closer to understanding the heart

Electrocardiogram (ECG, or also called EKG) can be used to provide information about a participant’s psychophysiological status, reflected in their heart rate activity.

Collecting this high-quality ECG data includes measuring Heart Rate Variability, which can be associated with the level of physiological or psychological stress (or conversely, calm) that an individual is experiencing.
