Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Research has argued that attachment styles, relatively stable throughout life, seem to influence how individuals respond to stress in adulthood. The cognitive schemata of insecure attachment, associated with negative emotions, often seem to relate to physical or mental illness, showing that psychobiological self-regulation mechanisms constitute factors of vulnerability to stressors. Several studies support the hypothesis that the development of less effective emotion regulation strategies are related to patterns of increased physiological reactivity and negative coping strategies, which may hinder adaptation in situations of illness and even promoting their progression. This research, based on a model of of self-regulation systems developed in interaction with early experiences, wants to characterize vulnerability to stress and adjustment to physical illness as a function of attachment style and explore the interactions between psychophysiological, emotional and behavioral dimensions, comparing women with breast cancer (N = 30) with healthy women (N = 31) and thus contribute to a tentative model of psychosomatic vulnerability. The results suggest insecure attachment patterns are related to less effective emotion regulation strategies and increased physiological reactivity and to negative adjustment outcomes.

Evaluation of stress reactivity and coping in breast cancer patients
Publication year: 2013

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
INTRODUCTION:
As a stress experience, breast cancer diagnosis induces psychological and physiological responses that may impair healthy adjustment and disease prognosis. This study aims to characterize and relate coping styles and autonomic reactivity measures, as stress responses to natural and induced stressors, in breast cancer patients and healthy controls.
METHODS:
patients were assessed prior to breast cancer treatments. After informed consent, all participants completed the Brief-COPE Questionnaire and psychophysiological measures (Electrodermal Activity, Respiratory Frequency, and Blood Volume Pressure) were recorded while answering a sociodemographic and clinical inquiry that was divided in Baseline, Arithmetic, Clinical and Life Events questions, to elicit different psychophysiological responses.
RESULTS:
Sample included 67 females, 32 patients and 35 controls. Patients mean age was 42.8 years and the mean time since diagnosis was 1 month. In Brief-COPE patients had significant higher scores in Use of Emotional Support (p < 0.05), Acceptance (p < 0.05), and Religion (p < 0.05) and significantly lower results in Behavioural Disengagement (p < 0.01). Control group was significantly more reactive in EDA Mean Level for each moment of the interview (p < 0.01) and EDA Mean Amplitude in Baseline (p < 0.01) and Arithmetic (p < 0.05). Both groups show negative correlations between adaptive coping styles and EDA Mean Level (p < 0.05) for every interview moments except for Life Events question in control group.
CONCLUSIONS:
These results reflect patient’s adaptive coping and psychophysiological responses to breast cancer diagnosis and highlight the association between coping strategies, as emotional regulation patterns, and autonomic reactivity, as suggested by control group outcomes.

Can stress vulnerability predict patients reactivity to breast cancer diagnosis?
Publication year: 2013

http://www.karger.com/Article/Pdf/354142
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
INTRODUCTION:
breast cancer diagnosis, being a threat to individual integrity, represents a major stressor that requires a considerable effort to a successful adjustment. From the perspective of a model of emotion regulation, present research intents to characterize and relate stress vulnerability to emotional distress and cortisol levels, as psychobiological stress reactivity measures, in a sample of breast cancer patients compared to control subjects.
METHODS:
Patients were approached before the beginning of any treatment. After informed consent, they completed the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Distress Thermometer and the Stress Vulnerability Questionnaire, among other measures. Saliva cortisol samples were collected in five moments, during a 24 hours period.
RESULTS:
Sample included 67 females, 32 patients, and 35 controls. Patients mean age was 42.8 years, 66% had college or superior education and 72% had no family history of breast cancer. The patients mean value of Distress Thermometer (from 0 to 10, according to severity) was significantly higher than controls (6.4/4.6; p = 0.007). Cortisol levels at waking, 1hour after waking and at 4 p.m. were higher in patients, although not significantly if compared to controls. Stress Vulnerability Total score was significantly higher in control group (31.2/36.2; p = 0.49), however below cut off point in both groups. Linear regression analysis showed that, in patients, stress vulnerability can predict distress levels and cortisol measures1 hour after waking and at 8 p.m..
CONCLUSIONS:
These results seem to reflect the early psychological impact of cancer diagnosis in patients, suggesting the relevance of emotion regulation processes in biological reactivity.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The relevance of psychophysiological measurements for affective computing and emotion analysis applications has been widely recognized. However, and although several authors have studied the informative content of parameters derived from cardiovascular and other modalities, feature extraction remains an open topic in the field. This is particularly relevant in scenarios where the autonomic nervous system triggering stimuli are unknown. In this paper, we analyze a set of features extracted from multimodal biosignal data, applicable to the assessment of psychophysiological load in unconstrained settings. Experimental evaluation is performed on real world data, collected both from control subjects and subjects with a strong clinical background, in a context of questionnaire-based clinical history reporting. The devised feature set has shown promising properties, making it prone to complement the more traditional measurements.

Psychophysiological measurements in emotion analysis and research

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
INTRODUCTION:
Feature extraction for emotion analysis in unconstrained settings where the triggering stimuli are unknown or not clearly defined in time remains an open topic in emotion research. We analysed psychophysiological load patterns using features extracted from multimodal biosignal data, namely: Blood Volume Pulse (BVP), Respiration (RESP), and Electrodermal Activity (EDA).
METHODS:
A total of 15 clinical subjects with breast cancer background and 34 controls were investigated. The task consisted of responding to a questionnaire organized into three moments: 1) neutral; 2) provocative, where a mathematical question was posed; and 3) Life-events reporting. Moment 1 targeted baseline definition, while moment 2 targeted the comparison between the psychophysiological reactions of a stimuli period that was not related to the life-events reporting, and the life-events reporting themselves.
RESULTS:
While standard measurements have shown little inter-/intra-group differentiation, we adopted an extended set with absolute skin conductance amplitude range (ASCAR) and heart rate increments (HRI). The control group has shown higher HRI throughout the different moments, when compared to the clinical group. Between moments 1 and 2, the clinical group has shown a more stable HRI trend, while the control group exhibited a higher variation. Furthermore, ASCAR clearly showed that moment 2 is a higher arousal period for the clinical group when compared to the controls.
CONCLUSIONS:
With an extended set of features we were able to obtain additional insight on the emotional behaviour when comparing clinical subjects with controls, and support the hypothesis that there are differentiated psychophysiological responses between groups.

Distress, attachment styles and psychophysiological indicators of stress reactivity in breast cancer patients
Publication year: 2014

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND:
According to literature on the impact of stress in health, negative emotions, or its suppression, can be adverse factors in disease outcomes. Attachment styles, relatively stable throughout life, seem to influence how individuals respond to stress in adulthood and how they acquire emotion regulation strategies through development. The aim of this research is to characterize and relate emotional distress, attachment styles, cortisol and psychophysiological reactivity, in recently diagnosed breast cancer patients compared to control subjects.
METHOD: Breast cancer patients and controls were evaluated after their informed consent. Assessment included socio-demographic and medical data, the Distress Thermometer (DT), the Adult Attachment Scale, the Brief Symptom Inventory
and the State Trait Anger Inventory (STAXI). In what concerns psychophysiological measures, heart rate, respiratory frequencies and electrodermic activity (EDA) were recorded during the interview, including neutral and activation moments. Salivary cortisol samples were collected at five different times during a 24 hours period.
RESULTS:
Preliminary results in 86 females, (51 patients and 35 control subjects) showed that patients mean age was 41.9 years, and the majority of the subjects had no family history of breast cancer. Patients mean value of DT was significantly higher than controls and cortisol levels at waking, 1 hour after and at 4 pm were higher in patients, but not significantly facing controls. Insecure attachment patterns seem to be related to less effective emotion regulation strategies and increased physiological reactivity and to negative adjustment outcomes.
CONCLUSIONS:
These results highlight the association between psychological distress, cortisol and autonomic measures, pointing to the relevance of emotion regulation in biological reactivity and probably in disease evolution and prognosis.
RESEARCH IMPLICATIONS: Facing breast cancer, the characterization of the impact of the diagnosis and the relationship between psychological and biological dimensions, may reinforce a psychosomatic approach in current investigation.
CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS:
A better knowledge of the processes involved in disease adaptation can assume relevant implications in clinical intervention, promoting the identification of the most vulnerable patients and improving the quality of care, in a multidisciplinary perspective.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Research on psycho-oncology increased across literature during the last decades, pointing to links between biological, psychosocial and behavioural factors in cancer beginning and progression. This study aimed to characterize a sample of recently breast-cancer-diagnosed women, compared to a control group, regarding their stress reactivity at a psychological and autonomic levels, anger regulation and attachment styles. Eighty-seven females (52 breast cancer patients and 33 controls) respectively from Portuguese public hospitals and general population were recruited. They were assessed through psychometric measures (distress, attachment styles and anger regulation) and psychophysiological parameters of reactivity were collected. The breast cancer patients studied seem to be less anxious in their attachment patterns compared to healthy people, but they report significant distress while facing a threatening situation. This clinical group also shows lower psychophysiological reactivity, both at the baseline and confronted with different emotional eliciting stimuli. Self-directed anger was associated with the presence of anxious attachment schemes and strictly linked to the appraised distress. A predictive model suggests the impact of this pattern of anger management and an anxious attachment style in the emotional disturbance reported by these patients. Findings suggest that insecure attachment schemes, dysfunctional anger regulation strategies and a lack of psychophysiological activation may be discussed as relevant factors that modulate emotional distress associated with the diagnosis of breast cancer.

Maternal separation impairs long term-potentiation in CA1-CA3 synapses and hippocampal-dependent memory in old rats

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Exposure to chronic stress during the neonatal period is known to induce permanent long-term changes in the central nervous system and hipothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis reactivity that are associated with increased levels of depression, anxiety, and cognitive impairments. In rodents, a validated model of early life stress is the maternal separation (MS) paradigm, which has been shown to have long-term consequences for the pups that span to adulthood. We hypothesized that the early life stress-associated effects could be exacerbated with aging, because it is often accompanied by cognitive decline. Using a MS model in which rat pups were separated from their mothers for 3 hours daily, during postnatal days 2-14, we evaluated the long-term functional consequences to aged animals (70-week-old), by measuring synaptic plasticity and cognitive performance. The baseline behavioral deficits of aged control rats were further exacerbated in MS animals, indicating that early-life stress induces sustained changes in anxiety-like behavior and hippocampal-dependent memory that are maintained much later in life. We then investigated whether these differences are linked to impaired function of hippocampal neurons by recording hippocampal long-term potentiation from Schaffer collaterals/CA1 synapses. The magnitude of the hippocampal long-term potentiation induced by high-frequency stimulation was significantly lower in aged MS animals than in age-matched controls. These results substantiate the hypothesis that the neuronal and endocrine alterations induced by early-life stress are long lasting, and are able to exacerbate the mild age-associated deficits.
