Sinopsis:

Psychophysiology is a field concerned with the relationship between ongoing physiological activities and behavior. The objectives of this third edition -- as it was for earlier versions -- is to introduce the beginning student to psychophysiology -- its concepts, empirical data, subject matter, and research techniques. As such, it provides a comprehensive introduction for those new to the area, whether they are upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, or professionals seeking basic information about the field. It contains information on a variety of physiological measures and covers anatomy and physiology, recording techniques, research findings, concepts in the field, practical applications and environmental influences.

Because the field of psychophysiology continues to develop and grow, the author not only explores some of the newer areas of importance to students, but also updates findings in the traditional topics of interest. This coverage includes:
* a new section on psychoneuroimmunology -- the relationships between brain, behavior, and immune function,
* current work on cardiovascular reactivity and the possible relationship between personality factors, reactivity, and the development of coronary heart disease,
* novel work on the use of event-related brain potentials in the study of neurological disorders,
* conceptual developments in the areas of cardiovascular psychophysiology,
* EEG asymmetries during the experience of different emotions,
* updated research on patterning of facial muscle activity in expressing emotions, and
* expanded information on the historical development of psychophysiology.

Each chapter is a self-contained unit -- allowing instructors to present material in sequences geared to their own personal preferences.

This book was written for upper-level undergraduates and beginning graduate students of psychology, and for professionals new to the area of psychophysiology. In addition to its use as a main text in psychophysiology courses, it may also be used as either a main text or as supplementary reading for courses in physiological psychology. It provides valuable material for related courses in behavioral and psychosomatic medicine, health psychology, biofeedback, biomedical engineering, and psychophysiological assessment. Clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, physical therapists, and other health professionals and researchers will find a great deal of useful information as well.

Review:

"Overall, I found this book enjoyable to read. There was a good logical progression from one topic to the next. It is very comprehensive, extensively documenting positive, negative or controversial findings by many measures of mental processes ranging from attention, concentration, memory, perception, sensation, intelligence, affect, language, and cognition to sleep."
―The Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences
