“. . .The study involved 90 children with asthma, aged 7-17. Forty-five asthmatic children with symptoms of depression were compared with 45 asthmatic children without symptoms of depression. Both groups viewed scary, sad (death) and happy scenes from the movie E.T.: The Extraterrestrial.
All children wore electrodes to collect data on heart and respiratory function, which showed the level of activation and reactivity of the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions. The researchers assessed airway function before the movie, after the death scene and after the movie.
“The depressed group consistently showed greater parasympathetic activation along with decreased sympathetic activation in response to the emotional provocations â€“ a pattern that would have a detrimental effect on the airways,” said Miller. . .”
