Table 1 Changes in finger pulse rate

From: Evaluation of mental stress by physiological indices derived from finger plethysmography

Finger pulse rate (bpm)
Pre-task 67.13 ± 10.38
CWT-1 75.39 ± 12.47
CWT-2 75.32 ± 11.94
CWT-3 76.52 ± 11.78
Post-task 68.13 ± 10.44
  1. Values are given as mean ± standard deviation (n = 31). CWT, Stroop color-word conflict test; post-task, rest period after CWT; pre-task, rest period before CWT. Significant differences (P < 0.001) were seen in all stages. (Wilcoxon signed-ranks test).
