The Use of Feedback to Reduce the Cardiovascular Response to Exercise
Is voluntary control of autonomically innervated systems possible?
Does biofeedback aid such control?
If achieved, is this control direct and specific to the systems being fed back or part of an overall pattern of nervous and metabolic adjustments?
