Zusammenfassung: 
Amongst 86 patients with myocardial infarction, during their stay in a rehabilitation clinic, emotions (Gottschalk-Gleser speech content analysis), assessed at the beginning of the treatment, and cardiovascular (systolic and diastolic blood pressure, heart rate and reactivity during physical stress, performance) and metabolic parameters (triglycerides, HDL- and LDL-cholesterin, cholesterin/HDL, uric acid) assessed at the beginning (concurrent) and end (predictive) of the treatment, are examined. The emotion-factors `'dejection'' (anger in, shame and death anxiety) and `aggression' (anger out-open, anger out-hidden and ambivalent aggression) show the following association with the biological factors in stepwise regression analysis, taking into account age, body-mass-index, smoking and drugs: dejection is concurrent associated with lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure and lower HDL-cholesterin and predictive with lower uric acid, lower HDL-cholesterin and higher cholesterin/HDL Aggression corresponds predictive with higher pulse rate and higher reactivity during physical stress, lower HDL-cholesterin and higher cholesterin/HDL.
