A definition of the term "rebound" is presented. It refers to a reflex response after the sudden withdrawal of a stimulus due to the withholding of beta-blocking drugs. This results in increased heart rate and blood pressure.

    Functional interaction was studied between the subsystems that ensure autonomic control of the heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP) and give rise to 0.1-Hz oscillations in R-R intervals (RRI) and photoplethysmogram (PPG). Twenty-five recordings were obtained from 18- to 32-year-old healthy...
