Coronary Heart Disease Epidemiology

A. Steptoe

Oxford University Press

This chapter summarizes applications of psychophysiological methods in coronary heart disease (CHD) epidemiology. It demonstrates that psychophysiological pathways are biologically plausible, and can be studied in ways that illuminate CHD aetiology. The contributions of psychophysiological processes within the multiple determinants of CHD risk are presented in a schematic model at the end of the chapter.

Keywords:   coronary heart disease, CHD, epidemiology, psychophysiological pathways
