After a short break football season is about to start again in Italy
I’m proud and excited to be supporting for a third year Bologna Football Club, helping the team to monitor physiological responses to training and lifestyle stressors
I hope HRV4Training will make it easier to keep an eye on the athletes' health as well during these exceptional times
It feels always special to sign my home team. Grazie Nicolò, e forza ragazzi!
Special Issue "Smartphones and Wearable Sensors for Monitoring Heart Rate and Heart Rate Variability"
Excited to have been invited by the scientific journal Sensors to set up a special issue on smartphones and wearable sensors for heart rate monitoring, as guest editor. Contributions ranging from technology development to applications relying on such data are welcome.
Please learn more about the special issue at the link below (or here). I am looking forward to reading your contributions
> What's stress?
> What about the autonomic nervous system?
> How does heart rate variability (HRV) play a role?
> When and how should you measure your HRV? What can you do with the data?

Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Biofeedback and Athletic Performance: Expected physiological, psychological and performance outcomes
In this last part of my introductory series on HRV Biofeedback, I will provide an overview of the main outcomes of HRV Biofeedback interventions, in terms of performance changes as well as physiological or psychological changes. I will first report on early explorations, then move towards higher-quality studies and finally cover recent attempts to investigate HRV Biofeedback interventions in more applied and practical settings.
