Due to the importance of baseline and recovery levels in the computation of reactivity, two studies were conducted to determine an alternative method to traditional rest for achieving baseline and recovery levels of cardiovascular measurements. Watching a relaxing, aquatic video was compared with a traditional resting baseline to determine the better method(More)
The present study delineates a method for the quantification of six hemodynamic reactivity patterns, in response to a laboratory stressor, and examines the psychophysiological correlates of individual differences in these patterns. One hundred and ninety-four young adult men and women participated in rest periods and two laboratory stressors, mental(More)
We examined whether responder type groups reflecting patterns of hemodynamic reactivity might also differ in recovery responses. Cardiac output (CO), total peripheral resistance (TPR), systolic and diastolic blood pressure, heart rate, and Heather index were assessed at rest and during speech and cold pressor tasks in young adults. Participants (n = 152)(More)
Family history of hypertension (positive and negative) and gender groups were compared on cardiovascular responses at rest, during stressors and during recovery. Two tasks were employed, mental arithmetic and an anger recall interview. Both levels and reactivity measures of blood pressure, heart rate, cardiac output and total peripheral resistance were(More)
The present study examined the interactive effects of hostility and a predisposition towards emotional expression or suppression in interpersonal situations. We also attempted to partially replicate findings from a recent investigation which provided evidence of lower myocardial and greater vascular responses in high-hostile relative to low-hostile(More)

Modeling behavior related to radicalization and terrorism is extremely complex. Consequently, the development of computational approaches to support an understanding of behavioral underpinnings that lead up to radicalization is a significant undertaking and necessitates either a decomposition of behavioral activity into smaller, more manageable behaviors or(More)
Behavioral ratings of performance and nervousness during a speech were used to divide participants (n=54) into threat and challenge groups. Comparisons on cardiac output, Heather index, heart rate, vascular resistance, and blood pressure reactivity indicated greater myocardial responses for the challenge group. This study extends the threat-challenge(More)
