Conference paper


The present volume has arisen from an international conference held in Winterscheid in 1984. As a result, in part, of the mixed positive and negative findings that have emerged since the Altenberg conference in 1981, debate at the conference in Winterscheid was lively, open, and intriguing. In large measure this debate served to focus the emphasis of the contributions now included; they are presented in five sections, described below:


Sudden Cardiac Death Pathophysiological Mechanism Cardiovascular Reactivity Physiological Reactivity Individual Difference Variable
