Objective While most investigations of the link between blood pressure responses and later disease have focused on acute reactivity during stressful tasks, there is some theoretical and empirical reason to believe that examining recovery and later re-creations of BP responses may also be useful. Two experiments explored situational determinants of sustained BP elevations, examining whether the extent of recovery and the ability to later mentally recreate the response are influenced by the… Expand

TLDR
Results indicated that rumination was sufficient to elevate blood pressure above baseline, that the delay made no difference to the magnitude of the elevation, but that the second rumination seemed to be associated with a smaller response than the first, and the first rumination response was significantly correlated with the second. Expand
The Role of Angry Rumination and Distraction in Blood Pressure Recovery From Emotional Arousal
TLDR
People who have a tendency to ruminate about past anger-provoking events may be at greater risk for target organ damage as a result of sustained blood pressure elevations; the effect is exacerbated when distractions are not available to interrupt the ruminative process. Expand
Cardiovascular and affective consequences of ruminating on a performance stressor depend on mode of thought.
TLDR
Results suggest that the immediate physiological and psychological consequences of stressor-focused rumination depend upon mode of thought, and level of construal (abstract or concrete) and type of mentation (imagery or verbal thought) used during Stressor- focused rumination may shape physiological and affective responses and impact recovery. Expand
The Effect of Trait Rumination on Adaptation to Repeated Stress
TLDR
It is suggested that trait rumination may contribute to sustained increases in blood pressure by influencing adaptation to mental stress. Expand
The role of affect and rumination in cardiovascular recovery from stress.
TLDR
Results indicated that blood pressure recovery was hampered by the negative affect manipulation and by rumination, however, the positive affect manipulation did not facilitateBlood pressure recovery. Expand

Rumination in the laboratory: what happens when you go back to everyday life?
TLDR
Rumination during the day was a strong predictor of AHR, ABP, and mood and increased negative mood compared to distraction and BP reactivity in the laboratory and increases in ABP during rumination were related. Expand
Rumination and Cortisol Responses to Laboratory Stressors
TLDR
Results suggest that the nature of the relationship between cortisol activation and rumination may be contingent on how rumination is conceptualized and measured. Expand

TLDR
The findings highlight the interactive influences of AI and hostility in predicting CVR to stress and underscore the importance of recovery assessments in understanding the potentially pathogenic associations of these constructs. Expand

TLDR
The results showed that subjects with elevated systolic BP (SBP) scored significantly higher on the ER scale than the controls and this was true for both sexes, andThis was particularly true for those over 40. Expand
Emotional Reactivity, Defensiveness, and Ambulatory Cardiovascular Response at Work
TLDR
Both high ER and low defensiveness were independently shown to be effective in identifying persons who might display recurrent tension arousal and pressure responses at work as well as high baseline BP values. Expand
Differential effects of harassment on cardiovascular and salivary cortisol stress reactivity and recovery in women and men.
TLDR
The results contribute to showing a pathway that may link negative affect with the development of cardiovascular disease, and several gender differences in response to the stressor and during the recovery period were observed. Expand
Negative emotions and acute physiological responses to stress
TLDR
The results raise questions about the role of emotion in mediating stress-elicited physiological responses, and the nature of the acute laboratory stress paradigm may contribute to the lack of a strong association. Expand
Association between delayed recovery of blood pressure after acute mental stress and parental history of hypertension
TLDR
Parental history of hypertension may affect the duration of the blood pressure response to an acute stressor more than the magnitude of the response. Expand
The social construction of cardiovascular reactivity
TLDR
It is argued that careful attention to psychological naturalism is essential, with the testing carefully matched to specific real-world phenomena of interest, when testing in arbitrary and artificial settings cannot be expected to generalize well to the real world. Expand
Gender, anger expression style, and opportunity for anger release determine cardiovascular reaction to and recovery from anger provocation.
TLDR
Investigation of how gender and habitual style for anger‐in or anger‐out behavior modulate the effect of anger provocation and release found anger expression style as a trait‐type disposition was important for the recovery process in women whereas the situational manipulation had specific effects on the Recovery process of men.

Sex differences in cardiovascular reactivity: effects of the gender relevance of the stressor.
TLDR
The role of the gender relevance of the stressor as a mediator of sex differences in cardiovascular reactivity was examined and predicted men were expected to show greater CVR than women to the masculine CPT but not to the gender-neutral CPT. Expand
