Accepts healthy volunteers


The Life University Center for Chiropractic Research is conducting a research study to better understand the physiological differences, in terms of Autonomic nervous system function, between individuals with Hypertension and control individuals with out hypertension. Data will be gathered using Heart Rate Variability (HRV), and Galvanic Skin Response (GSR). A series of tests will be conducted to elicit Autonomic Nervous system responses. These tests include Cold Face Test (mammalian dive reflex), Cold Pressor test, Sit to stand, and the Valsalva maneuver.


The objective of the study is to ascertain the level of autonomic health in persons with hypertension versus a healthy population. Further, via the implemented protocol, the study will attempt to develop a sequence of autonomic nervous system tests to be used in future studies and clinical settings
