Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT
Numerous methods for enhancing consciousness and well-being emphasize the role of breathing. We have for the first time investigated the link between body rhythms and slow cortical brain dynamics during paced breathing. Physiological data from 37 participants are presented, who conducted paced breathing sessions with respiration rates (RR) from 6 to 14 seconds/cycle for 7 min each task. Measures of respiration, heart rate variability (HRV), and 64 channels EEG as well as subjective ratings were recorded and compared with each other. 
 Both, the respiratory sinus arrhythmia of the HRV and the slow cortical potentials (SCPs) of the EEG correlated with the respiration cycle. The highest correlations were observed at a RR of 10 seconds/cycle especially for the SCPs. A strong positive voltage deflection during inhalation is followed by a negative variation during exhalation. This decelerated breathing rhythm matches the frequency of the baroreceptor sensitivity, leading to synchronization between breath, HRV, baroreceptors and the brain. Subjectively, participants rated this RR as the most relaxing one. This study demonstrates the importance of the speed of breathing on the brain dynamics which might help in understanding the role of the breath for mental health.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
Numerous methods for enhancing consciousness and well-being emphasize the role of breathing. We have investigated the link between body rhythms and brain dynamics during paced breathing.
AIMS
Investigating correlations between EEG parameters and heart rate at different various breathing frequencies.
METHOD
About 40 participants conducted paced breathing sessions with respiration rates (RR) from 6 to 14 s/cycle for 7 min each task. Measures of respiration, heart rate variability (HRV), skin conductance and 64 channels EEG as well as subjective ratings were recorded and results at various RR were compared with each other. An additional hand movement task controlled for task-dependent EEG changes.
RESULTS
Both, the respiratory sinus arrhythmia of the HRV and the slow cortical potentials (SCPs) of the EEG correlated with the respiration cycle, however the highest correlations were observed at a RR of 10 s/cycle most predominantly for the SCPs. A strong positive voltage deflection during inhalation is followed by a negative variation during exhalation (20µV pp). In contrast, during RR of 6s/cycle SCP changes remained below 5µV and during 10s/cycle control task below 3µV. Subjectively, participants rated this RR as the most relaxing one. Brain oscillations from Delta to Gamma correlated only weak with the course of respiration.
CONCLUSIONS
This study demonstrates the importance of the speed of breathing on the brain dynamics, especially on SCPs. This decelerated breathing rhythm matches the frequency of the baroreceptor sensitivity, leading to synchronization between breath, HRV, baroreceptors and the brain. Future applications might help us understanding the role of breath for altering states of consciousness.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Due to the high mental demands in complex environments there is increasing interest in the research of the highly sensitive personality (HSP). People with HSP are challenged in a special way. We have developed a novel inventory for the assessment of a person’s sensitivity and the sensory processing problems separately which might be related to certain aspects of sensitivity. The model discriminates between external, internal, emotional, and social sensitivities as well as the openness for new experiences. The inventory was assessed in a psychosomatic clinic on more than 4000 participants. We found the sensitivity of patients to be correlated with resilience, experience of meaning, positive feelings and success, while mental processing problems were strongly correlated with burnout symptoms, depression, and anxiety and negatively correlated with resilience. These results suggest that psychopathological factors seem to be closely connected to problems in the processing of external, internal, social and emotional perceptions and sensations. In contrast, mental health, happiness and salutogenetic states of consciousness seem to be related to the experience of a rich sensory capability.
