    Abstract

    Several coupled and nonlinear controlling mechanisms are involved in the regulation of blood pressure. The possible presence of chaos in physiological signals has been the subject of some research. In this study, blood pressure signals were analysed using a range of nonlinear time series analysis techniques. Individual effectors of blood pressure were either experimentally removed or enhanced, so that the controlling mechanisms that are responsible for the chaotic nature of the signals may be identified by chaotic analysis of the signals. The level of chaos varied across the different experimental conditions, showing a distinct decrease from control conditions to all other experimental conditions.
