Studies of emotion have provided occasional support for physiological differentiation of affective states; however, the evidence has been inconsistent. The aims of the present study were to investigate cardiovascular changes associated with relived experiences of happiness, sadness, anger, fear, and disgust and to examine the utility of methods designed to(More)
Hemodynamic responses to an anger interview and cognitive and physical stressors were compared, and the stability of associated hemodynamic reactions examined. Participants experienced control, handgrip, counting, and mental arithmetic tests and an anger interview on two occasions. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure, heart rate, stroke volume, and(More)
Organic single crystals provide an ideal model for studying the factors that influence chemical processes in structured media. Reaction trajectories are well defined and reveal the influence of spontaneous mechanical stresses equivalent to tens of thousands of atmospheres. Analysis of molecular and crystal structures helps to explain both local mechanical(More)
This study examined the effects of an active cycling warm-up, with and without the addition of an inspiratory muscle warm-up (IMW), on 10-km cycling time-trial performance. Ten cyclists ( $$\dot{V}{\text{O}}_{ 2} \,{ \hbox{max} }$$ V ˙ O 2 max  = 65 ± 9 mL kg−1 min−1) performed a habituation 10-km cycling time-trial and three further time-trials preceded by(More)
Prolactin administration reportedly increases blood pressure in rats and rabbits. To study the effects of prolactin deficiency on blood pressure, rats were given saline, normal rabbit serum, or rabbit antiserum to rat prolactin on postnatal days 2 to 5. Both males and females given antiserum had significantly lower blood pressure at 14 weeks than rats given(More)
Large retailers or distributors may exercise buyer power in their interactions with manufacturers in order to obtain preferential terms of sale. This paper explores the use of exclusive dealing arrangements by a monopoly retailer to win advantageous pricing from competing manufacturers of a differentiated product. When consumers' brand preferences are weak(More)
Abba Lerner " s 1934 paper in The Review of Economic Studies is known today as the source of the Lerner Index of monopoly power. By identifying the social loss from monopoly as the divergence between price and marginal cost, rather than the " usually accepted " (p. 161) relationship between price and average cost, Lerner redirected attention from the(More)
We examined differing predictions of how emotional expressions and blood pressure are related. Spontaneous positive and negative facial expressions, resting systolic blood pressure (SBP), and reactive SBP were each measured for 148 male and female undergraduates. The discharge theory of emotions proposes that few expressions will predict higher baseline(More)
