Abstract/Description: Abnormalities in autonomic reactivity to aversive stimuli (e.g., heart rate deceleration) have been demonstrated in individuals with various forms of externalizing spectrum disorders (Raine, Venables & Williams, 1995). Differential components of heart rate reactivity (HR) were hypothesized to reflect orienting responses and engagement in a defensive (fight or flight) motivational state. The Externalizing Spectrum Model (Krueger et al., 2002; Krueger & Markon, 2005) posits clinical problems involving excessive substance use and antisocial behavior are specific manifestations of a general propensity towards deficient impulse control (disinhibitory proneness). The current study expands upon previous research by evaluating the association between disinhibitory proneness (operationalized through scores on the Externalizing Spectrum Inventory; Krueger, Markon, Patrick, Benning, & Kramer, 2007) and cardiac reactivity in a community sample of twins (N=508). Findings provide support for reduced cardiac reactivity in individuals scoring highly on disinhibitory proneness.
