Cardiovascular Reactivity to Psychological Stress and Disease
Cardiovascular Reactivity to Psychological Stress and Disease brings the specialist up-to-date by taking a hard look at the cardiovascular reactivity hypothesis.
The contributors, leading scholars in the field, examine the evidence linking hypertension and cardiovascular disease found in both animal and human research. Contributors also explore arguments and data on the complexity of cardiovascular response and on the need to examine patterns of physiological responses over time. In addition, state-of-the-art technology used in reactivity research (e.g., impedance cardiography and radionuclide ventriculography) are discussed and evaluated.
For researchers and specialists in health psychology, behavioral medicine, or psychophysiology, Cardiovascular Reactivity will be an essential reference on correlations between psychological stress and disease.
This softcover edition is a re-release of the 1993 hardcover edition.
