Documents & Timeline
1983 Oct 31The Annual Research Report of a psychologist named David G Gilbert who worked for RJ Reynolds.
His work was to:
- Confirm and extend knowledge of the bodily, mental and emotional responses to smoking and explore interactions of smoking with enotions, personality and stress. [Nicotine]
- Maintain contact with consultants and/or researchers in the biobehavioral area.
- Assist in communications with Dr Hans Eysenck concerning RJR-sponsored research and other relevant matters.
- Communicated with Dr. Eysenck by letter and phone. We received several pre-publication articles related to smoking and psychophysiology written under Eysenck's direction and received biannual progress reports on Dr. Eysenck's RJR-sponsored research.
- Received and forwarded Eysenck's proposals for RJR's funding of him in 1983. I wrote a memo to my superiors noting the high quality and productivity of Dr. Eysenck's RJR-funded work and suggested that we are getting a lot in return for our money.
- Spoke with Kieron O'Connor at SPR Convention about Eysenck's RJR-sponsored research and about Dr. Eysenck's status during the coming few years. Both O'Connor and Eysenck report that Eysenck will continue to be in charge of grants and research at the Institute of Psychiatry in London. His status, however, recently changed from Professor to Professor Emeritus.
- Assist in communications with Dr. Charles Spielberger in matters concerning smoking-related research.
- 1. Consulted with Dr. Spielberger on numerous occasions in regards to the scientific validity of conclusions reached in an article discussing filter vent blocking.
- 2. Spoke with Dr. Spielberger at the American Psychological.Association Convention about preliminary analysis of 1982 Smoking and Stress Study questionnaire data.
- 1. Wrote a critique of the work by Kozlowski on filter vent hole blocking and worked with Charles Spielberger in gaining unbiased critiques from reputable scientists.
- 2. Participated in brainstorming session with Don Robert's group and with members of the Biobehavioral group to generate new ideas for possible future company marketing.
- 3. Performed small pilot study with Dr. Charles Green on the effects of Copenhagen versus RJR snuff. Both snuffs caused large (10 to 24 beat per minute) increases in heart rate after approximately 15 Minutes. No reliable differences between the two snuffs were found, possibly because of the very small number of trials. 
1987-89 An RJ Reynolds account of expenditure on (perhaps) legitimate research list a large number of outside nicotine research consultants who don't figure in the CTR Special Project #4 accounts -- and then a couple who do. These are research projects for RJ Reynolds Tobacco on: Psychophysiology of Smoking - interaction of traits, emotions, stress, etc. (marketing orientation)
