Abstract
OCT is highly potential for dynamic analysis of physiological functions of mental sweating and peripheral vessels as demonstrated by the authors. Both mental sweating and the peripheral vessels reflect the activity of the sympathetic nerve of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The sympathetic nerve also exhibits the LF/HF ratio of the heart rate variability (HRV). In this paper, we demonstrate dynamic analysis of mental sweating and the peripheral vessels for the external stimulus by SS-OCT. In the experiment, the Kraepelin test as a continuous stimulus was applied to the volunteer to discuss in detail dynamics of the physiological function of such small organs in response to the HRV.
