It has been shown that the peak of the high-frequency (HF) component reffects parasympathetic nerve activity, where-as the peak of low-frequency (LF) component depends on the balance of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve tones (1).
The parasympathetic nerves contain the neurotransmitters acetylcholine and vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), and the sympathetic nerves contain norepinephrine and neuropeptide Y.

Heart rate variability (HRV) is a measure of the balance between sympathetic mediators of heart rate that is the effect of epinephrine and norepinephrine released from sympathetic nerve fibres acting on the sino-atrial and atrio-ventricular nodes which increase the rate of cardiac contraction and facilitate conduction at the atrio-ventricular node and parasympathetic mediators of heart rate that is the influence of acetylcholine released by the parasympathetic nerve fibres acting on the sino-atrial and atrio-ventricular nodes leading to a decrease in the heart rate and a slowing of conduction at the atrio-ventricular node.
