2012). In this context, depressed individuals may show emotional insensitivity 28 which is associated with flattened emotional reactivity (Bylsma et al. 2008). The present findings suggest that depressive feelings present in mood disturbance influence emotional reactivity, contributing to altered neurocardiac integrity in response to negative emotional stress. Furthermore, the neurovisceral theory suggests that a common reciprocal inhibitory cortico-subcortical neural network serves as the structural link between emotion and cognition, and health-related physiological processes (Thayer and Lane 2000).

To quantify the EMG, the signals were filtered (10–1000 kHz) and integrated on a moving time-average basis with a time constant of 150 ms. The peak amplitude of integrated EMG was measured for each inspiratory muscle during valid maximal inspiratory maneuver before and after exercise test. The peak integrated EMG activity was measured in arbitrary units and then expressed as the percentage of a value reached during M€uller’s maneuver before exercise test (control). A fast Fourier transform of EMG was used to compute the power spectral density (Solnushkin et al.
