Laboratory-Field Generalization of Cardiovascular Activity
In Chapter 5 we noted the three attributes of individual differences in reactivity that have particular significance when considering current hypotheses that link cardiovascular reactivity to aspects of cardiovascular disease (Manuck et al., 1989). These were temporal stability, intertask consistency, and laboratory-field generalization. The first two of these attributes were dealt with in detail in that chapter. Accordingly, we will now examine laboratory-field generalization.
