Linkages Between Facial Expressions of Anger and Transient Myocardial Ischemia in Men with Coronary Artery Disease

Journal Article (Chapter)

This chapter examines linkages between spontaneous facial expressions of emotion and ischemia and examines the relative contributions of hostility and anger to a coronary heart disease-relevant outcome. The dynamic linkages between facial expressions of anger and a clinically significant measure of coronary dysfunction are shown. The results contribute to the understanding of the differential influences of hostility and anger on coronary heart disease outcomes.
