Abstract

Cardiovascular reactivity is a psychophysiological construct referring to the magnitude, patterns, and/or mechanisms of cardiovascular responses associated with exposure to psychological stress. It is a term that is used to refer to the propensity for an individual to exhibit an alteration in cardiovascular activity during exposure to some external, predominantly psychological stimulus, which may, or may not, elicit an active behavioral response. Hence, cardiovascular reactivity is assumed to be a behavioral trait. A key objective of this chapter is to review the available evidence relevant to this contention.
