VTechWorks staff will be away for the Thanksgiving holiday beginning at noon on Wednesday, November 22, through Friday, November 24, and will not be replying to requests during this time. Thank you for your patience, and happy holidays!
Hostile-Diabetic Men: An Examination of Peripheral Glucose and QEEG Magnitudes Subsequent to Lateralized Fluency-Stressors
Using the Limited Capacity Model of hostility (Walters & Harrison, 2006; Williamson & Harrison, 2005; Williamson, Harrison, & Walters, 2007) as a guide, the stress response of individuals with a variable and dysregulated fuel supply to their brain (diabetes) was examined subsequent to lateralized fluency-stress. This theoretical â capacityâ model of hostility was applied to a relatively unknown population of high hostile-diabetics. Given the associations between hostility and diabetes, it was argued that a very robust stress response would be evident, as measured as by peripheral glucose and QEEG magnitudes, as a result of modest regulatory capacity subsequent to right frontal lobe stress. Moreover, it was expected that high hostile-diabetics would show diminished performance on neuropsychological indicants of right frontal functions.
