Abstract: The lack of open-source tools for physiological signal processing hinders the development of standardized pipelines in physiology. Researchers usually must rely on commercial software that, by implementing black-box algorithms, undermines the control on the analysis and prevents the comparison of the results, ultimately affecting the scientific reproducibility. We introduce pyphysio as a step towards a data science approach oriented to compute physiological indicators, in particular of the Autonomic Nervous System activity. pyphysio serves as a basis for machine learning modules and it implements a suite of combinable algorithms for processing of signals from either by wearable or medical-grade quality devices.
