Abstract : An experiment investigated the effect of increased information processing on sinus arrhythmia and anxiety level. Results of a one-way analysis of variance indicated that increased information processing had affected sinus arrhythmia and had no affect on anxiety level. Simple linear correlation analysis was performed to determine the relationships between sinus arrhythmia, anxiety level and information processing rate. An increase in information level was accompanied by a decrease in sinus arrhythmia and anxiety levels remained constant across information loads. (Author)
