Abstract

Recently, the correlation between biomedical signals, such as electroencephalograms (EEG) and electrocardiograms (ECG) time series signals, has been analysed using the Pearson Correlation method. Although Wavelet Transformations (WT) have been performed on time series data including EEG and ECG signals, so far the correlation between WT signals has not been analysed. This research shows the correlation between the EEG and HRV, with and without WT signals. Our results suggest electrical activity in the frontal lobe of the brain is best correlated with the HRV.We assume this is because the frontal lobe is related to higher mental functions of the cerebral cortex and responsible for muscle movements of the body. Our results indicate a positive correlation between Delta, Alpha and Beta frequencies of EEG at both low frequency (LF) and high frequency (HF) of HRV. This finding is independent of both participants and brain hemisphere.
