The Coherent Heart: Heart-Brain Interactions, Psychophysiological Coherence, and the Emergence of System-Wide Order
By Rollin McCraty, Ph.D., Mike Atkinson, Dana Tomasino, B.A., and Raymond Trevor Bradley, Ph.D.

Heart-Brain Interactions
The Coherent Heart
is IHM's most comprehensive scientific monograph to date. It provides an in-depth understanding of the role of the heart role in the emergence of systemwide coherence and new research findings on how heart-brain interactions affect various aspects of cognitive performance. The Coherent Heart explores communication within and among the body's systems through the generation and transmission of rhythms and patterns in the nervous and hormonal systems. Using the pattern of the heart's rhythmic activity as the primary physiological marker, six different modes of psychophysiological function are identified, distinguished by their physiological, mental, and emotional correlates. Building on these empirical findings, IHM's research on the psychophysiology of emotions is synthesized for the first time in a typology—a conceptual "map"—of psychophysiological interaction, which is presented graphically. Explored in depth are the characteristics and benefits of the psychophysiological coherence mode, associated with sustained positive emotions and a global shift to increased synchronization and harmony in psychophysiological processes.

Topics covered include how coherence aids in pain reduction, the interactions between heart rhythms and respiration, and how heart coherence affects emotional experience and hormones such as cortisol and oxytocin. Of particular interest is the thorough discussion of how coherence improves cognitive performance, which highlights how the heart and brain interact to affect cognitive processes. This section provides a review of past research on heart-brain interactions, presents new research data on heart coherence, and introduces a new hypothesis regarding the influence of "macro-scale" patterns of heart activity on cognition.

This monograph is intended primarily for the researchers, medical professionals, students of psychophysiology and related fields, and laypeople who desire a deeper understanding of heart-brain interactions and the benefits of heart coherence.

The Energetic Heart - e-Booklet

Item # EEGH Price: $12.95

The Energetic Heart: Bioelectromagnetic Interactions Within and Between People
By Rollin McCraty, Ph.D.

Heart's Electromagnetic Field
This fascinating monograph, The Energetic Heart explains the bioelectromagnetic interactions within and between people. Did you know that our physiological systems are interacting in subtle ways and the electromagnetic signal produced by your heart is registered in the brain waves of people around you? Discover why the heart's electromagnetic field is believed to act as a central synchronizing signal within the body, an important carrier of emotional information and a key mediator of energetic interactions between people. Learn more about IHM’s new research on bioelectromagnetic interactions and its implications.

Heart-Brain Neurodynamics - e-Booklet

Item # ENDY Price: $12.95

Heart–Brain Neurodynamics: The Making of Emotions
By Rollin McCraty, Ph.D.

The Making of Emotions
Heart-Brain Neurodynamicsexplores recent scientific advances that clarify a number of central controversies in the understanding of emotion, including the relationship between intellect and emotion. A discussion of the critical role of ascending input from the heart and body to the brain in the generation of emotions culminates in a detailed presentation of a new model of emotion in which the brain functions as a complex pattern-matching system. From this perspective it is shown that the heart is a key component of the emotional system, providing a physiological basis for the link between the heart and our emotional life.

Neurocardiology e-Booklet

Item # ENRO Price: $12.95

Neurocardiology: Anatomical and Functional Principles
By J. Andrew Armour, M.D., Ph.D.

The Heart Brain
In this technical monograph, Dr. Armour discusses the hearts intrinsic nervous system or "heart brain." Dr. Armour describes the anatomical organization and function of the intrinsic cardiac nervous system its complex neuronal processing and memory capabilities indicating that the heart brain can process information and make decisions about its control independent of the central nervous system. This monograph contributes to the newly emerging view of the heart as a complex, self-organized system that maintains a continuous two-way dialogue with the brain and the rest of the body.

This is a technical monograph written primarily for medical professionals, students, and researchers with a background in cardiology, neuroanatomy or neurophysiology.

The Appreciative Heart - e-Booklet

Item # EAPH Price: $12.95

The Appreciative Heart: The Psychophysiology of Positive Emotions and Optimal Functioning
By Rollin McCraty, Ph.D., and Doc Childre

Heart’s Role in Emotions
The Appreciative Heart provides a concise overview of the physiological correlates of positive emotions and the scientific underpinnings of two core HeartMath techniques that help empower Heart-Based Living. The heart's association with positive emotions, wisdom and intelligence is central to most cultures. New empirical research is providing scientific validation for this age-old association. This scientific monograph provides the steps and applications of two HeartMath techniques, Freeze-Frame® and Heart Lock-In®, which engage the heart to transform stress and sustained states of coherence. Data from outcome studies suggest that these techniques facilitate a beneficial repatterning process at the mental, emotional, and physiological levels.

Autonomic Assessment - e-Booklet

Item # EAAR Price: $19.95

Autonomic Assessment Report:
A Comprehensive Heart-Rate-Variability Analysis-Interpretation Guide and Instructions

The 24-Hour Heart-Rate-Variability Analysis

This guidebook provides an excellent introduction to using 24-hour heart-rate-variability (HRV) analyses in assessing the autonomic nervous system. HRV analysis provides a unique window into the dynamics of sympathetic and parasympathetic control of the heart, is useful for assessing autonomic involvement in a number of pathologies and enhancing health risk stratification. Includes clear, detailed descriptions of time and frequency domain measures of HRV and explains how they’re interpreted in clinical applications to provide comprehensive, quantitative analyses of autonomic activity and balance.

Intended primarily for researchers and healthcare professionals.
