Hypertension—Behavioral Influences

  • Paul A. Obrist


This chapter will focus on the BP effects we have obtained over the past several years in a variety of experimental paradigms. Initially, I shall describe SBP and DBP changes in those paradigms where we evaluated ß-adrenergic influences on the myocardium. Then I shall describe a series of observations that encourage us to initiate longitudinal studies and that 1 believe clearly implicate behavioral factors in the etiological process. Finally, I shall close with a couple of digressions that act to tie some loose ends together.
