Heart-Brain Communication and Personal, Social, and Global Coherence
Rollin McCraty, PhD, Director of Research at the HeartMath Institute, will provide an overview of innovative research on optimal functioning. This presentation provides new scientific research on a specific measurable state called “physiological coherence” and how this optimal state increases cognitive performance and health outcomes. Coherence levels can be measured by analysis of heart-rate variability, and smartphone-based instrumentation is used to facilitate learning how to shift into a more coherent state anytime and anywhere.
Dr. McCraty will also present data showing how the heart radiates a measurable magnetic field, which carries information which can affect other people around us. In addition, new data will be shared on how people are far more interconnected with each other and the earth’s magnetic field environment that previously imagined.
Dr. Rollin McCraty, PhD
Rollin McCraty, PhD, is Director of Research of the HeartMath Research Center at the Institute of HeartMath. He is also a Professor at Florida Atlantic University. A psychophysiologist, Dr. McCraty’s research interests include the physiology of emotion, with a focus on the mechanisms by which emotions influence cognitive processes, behavior, and health as well as the global interconnectivity between people and the earth’s energetic systems.
Findings from this research have been applied to the development of tools and technology to optimize individual and organizational health, performance, and quality of life. Dr. McCraty has acted as Principal Investigator in numerous laboratory research studies examining the effects of emotions on heart–brain interactions and on autonomic, cardiovascular, hormonal, and immune system function.
He has also served as PI in a number of field studies to determine the outcomes of positive emotion-focused interventions and heart rhythm feedback in diverse organizational and educational settings as well as in various clinical populations.
