Design of Autonomic Nerve Measuring System Using Pulse Signal

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 240)


As for studies on autonomic nerve reactions, many researchers have published study results for long time, but in the standpoint of reproducibility and usefulness, no satisfactory outcomes have been obtained so far. As a new way to measure the change in autonomic nerve system, the method of using pulse signal the oriental medicine diagnosis measure is proposed. Specifically the autonomic nerve reaction measuring device to verify the usefulness of the proposed method is designed directly, and new method to process the measured pulse signals is proposed.
