ABSTRACT
This article reviews a potentially key article integrating an understanding of negative affect states and cardiovascular health. Definitions, descriptions, and physiology of five negative affect states of depression, learned helplessness, hopelessness, vital exhaustion, and grief are critiqued. The relationship of these affect states to cardiovascular health are discussed from the perspective of the original article. Lastly, evidence regarding updating the original theory of conservation-withdrawal to include a modern addition of a giving up complex is reviewed. It is concluded that although the article had potential to significantly contribute to the literature, there are a number of areas that are lacking and unclear.
