Individual Differences in Cardiovascular Response to Stress / Edition 1by J. Rick Turner, Andrew Sherwood, Kathleen C. Light
Pub. Date: 09/01/1992
Publisher: Springer-Verlag New York, LLC
Demonstrating that the magnitude and pattern of cardiovascular response to stress varies markedly between individuals, this work discusses the mechanisms by which the cardiovascular system is mobilized during stress, the determinants of individual differences, and the pathophysiological processes by which responses to stress may lead to cardiovascular disease. Behavioral scientists from a variety of disciplines will find the work pertinent to their research.
