In each experiment stressor control led to a reduction in anticipatory physiological stress. These findings support the minimax hypothesis but contravene alternative theories that attribute the beneficial effects of stressor control to the predictive information furnished by controlling actions.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Guilford Press||Copyright (published version):||1988 Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology||Keywords:||Stress responses||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
