Relationships between the type A behavior pattern and phasic heart rate responses during a reaction time task.

Abstract

Type A and B college students performed a signalled reaction time task with a 17-s fixed preparatory internal (PI) while heart rate was recorded. The analysis of the first half of the PI indicated a triphasic heart rate response (deceleration-acceleration-deceleration) to the warning signal, followed by a return toward baseline.
