Summary "The field of motivation is concerned with action--its selection, preparation, and execution. Put differently, it is concerned with why organisms move in the directions they do and why they do so with different degrees of persistence and vigor (McClelland, 1985). It is in this context of heightened interest in motivation that we offer the present edited volume concerned with motivation influence on cardiovascular (CV) response, that is, adjustment in CV function. The volume is made up of chapters prepared by emerging as well as established research scientists and is international, including contributions from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Its central purposes are multifold. One is to increase awareness of the amount and diversity of motivationally based CV response research that is currently being conducted. Much of this work is being carried out in distinct quarters ("silos") of psychological science, such as those concerned with neuroscience, psychophysiology, social processes, and health. As a result, many scholars, investigators, and practitioners may be unaware of its extent and character. A second purpose is to facilitate relevant cross-disciplinary communication as well as comparison and contrast of guiding theoretical propositions and assumptions. Because scholars, investigators, and practitioners tend to work in distinct professional quarters, they tend not to communicate as much as they should with the broader range of their peers. This lack of communication works against the identification of crosscutting themes, complementarities, and points of conflict but can be countered by endeavors such as the present one to draw members of disparate groups together. A third purpose of the volume is practical--specifically, to illustrate how useful motivational approaches can be in informing us about CV responses in social, work, and achievement circumstances and highlighting conditions under which they might have implications for health"--Introduction.
