Stress, Coping, and Cardiovascular Disease
The latest volume in the series based on the Annual Stress and Coping Symposia held at the University of Miami, Drs. McCabe, Schneiderman, Field, and Wellens bring together an outstanding group of researchers to examine the relationship between bio-behavioral and social factors and heart disease.
Highlights of the book include an in-depth look at the latest research on:
* basic physiological processes in cardiovascular reactivity to stress;
* pathophysiological mechanisms in cardiovascular disease;
* ethnic differences in cardiovascular regulation;
* psychosocial influences on cardiovascular function/disease; and
* Behavioral interventions designed to treat cardiovascular disorders.
The goal of Stress, Coping, and Cardiovascular Disease is to provide a solid empirical foundation on the relationship between stress and cardiovascular disease so as to stimulate further research into the pathophysiology and treatment of the leading cause of death in industrialized countries.
