INTRODUCTION The early phase of essential hypertension has been associated with changes in cardiovascular regulation caused by imbalance in some parts of autonomic nervous system. Autonomic effect of various stimuli on haemodynamic variables is usually tested by changes in blood pressure (BP) and/or heart rate (HR). It is known that increased sympathetic(More)
Autonomic effect of various stimuli on haemodynamic variables is usually tested by changes in blood pressure (BP) and/or heart rate (HR). It is known that increased sympathetic drive of ventricles can interfere with repolarization process. This study was focused on reactive changes of maximal spatial T vector (sTmax), R-R and QTc intervals, in relation to(More)
OBJECTIVES The term metamemory refers to the knowledge one has about the development and use of memory in general, and one's own memory processes in particular. The current theoretical perspective on memory processes is best described by the memory systems framework which represents a useful tool in specifying different 'kinds' of memory. We present here(More)
Based on theoretical and empirical similarities between Construal level theory of psychological distance and the Need for cognitive closure (NFC) theory, it could be hypothesized that psychological distance and NFC represent constructs that overlap to some degree. Since both theories describe judgmental behavior in terms of schematic processing, we(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE This article presents a multimodal analysis of startle type responses using a variety of physiological, facial, and speech features. These multimodal components of the startle type response reflect complex brain-body reactions to a sudden and intense stimulus. Additionally, the proposed multimodal evaluation of reflexive and(More)
