In Search of Cornoary-Prone Behavior: Beyond Type A provides a methodology of enormous potential for examining the relationship between behavioral variables and basic pathophysiological mechanisms. They discuss the history of Type-A behavior pattern (TABP) as it relates to coronary heart disease (CHD).
Students and researchers with an interest in the correlation between personality and coronary behavior, as well as behavioral medicine, social and health psychology, and the neurosciences.
