Research Interests

Lynanne Mcguire is particularly interested in individual differences in psychological factors that may predict physiological reactivity to painful stimuli (e.g., changes in blood pressure/heart rate, stress-related hormones, and immune function), and consequent vulnerability to poor health outcomes, such as delayed wound healing.  Future goals include testing the multidimensional effects of a broad spectrum of mind-body interventions in the context of physiological reactivity to pain.

Keywords: psychoneuroimmunology, mind-body interventions, pain, physiological reactivity, stress and health
