Individual Differences in Cardiovascular Response to Stress

by J. Rick Turner
     
 

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.

Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Describes the relationships among psychosocial stress, cardiovascular response to it, and the development of cardiovascular disease. Increasingly, scientists are hypothesizing that large-scale cardiovascular reactions to stress are linked to the later development of heart disease, so that accurate measurement and characterization of individual response might help identify people at higher than average risk.
