Heart rate variability: origins, methods, and interpretive caveats.
Components of heart rate variability have attracted considerable attention in psychology and medicine and have become important dependent measures in psychophysiology and behavioral medicine.Expand

The psychophysiology of emotion
Amines are prepared by reacting ammonia, a primary amine or a secondary amine with an olefin, carbon monoxide and water in the presence of a rhodium catalyst which is rhodium oxide or a rhodiumExpand

Relationship between attitudes and evaluative space: A critical review, with emphasis on the separability of positive and negative substrates.
Evaluative processes refer to the operations by which organisms discriminate threatening from nurturant environments. Low activation of positive and negative evaluative processes by a stimulusExpand

Rudimentary determinants of attitudes. II: Arm flexion and extension have differential effects on attitudes.
In the pain-flexor reflex, arm extension is temporally coupled with the onset of the unconditioned aversive stimulus, whereas flexion is associated with its offset; when retrieving desirable stimuli,Expand

Respiratory sinus arrhythmia: autonomic origins, physiological mechanisms, and psychophysiological implications.
Respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) is being used increasingly in psychophysiological studies as an index of vagal control of the heart and may be among the most selective noninvasive indices ofExpand

The affect system has parallel and integrative processing components: Form follows function.
The affect system has been shaped by the hammer and chisel of adaptation and natural selection such that form follows function. The characteristics of the system thus differ across the nervous systemExpand

Loneliness within a nomological net: An evolutionary perspective
Loneliness is characterized by feelings of social pain and isolation and has both heritable and unshared environmental underpinnings. An evolutionary theory of loneliness is outlined, and fourExpand

Autonomic determinism: the modes of autonomic control, the doctrine of autonomic space, and the laws of autonomic constraint.
Contemporary findings reveal that the multiple modes of autonomic control do not lie along a single continuum extending from parasympathetic to sympathetic dominance but rather distribute within aExpand
