This revised and expanded second edition of the Handbook of Psychophysiology replaces Professors Cacioppo and Tassinarys Principles of Psychophysiology. The revised second edition is an essential reference for students, researchers, and professionals in psychophysiology, psychology, psychiatry, neuroscience, and related biological and behavioral sciences.
This Handbook is divided into six sections covering topics such as the history of psychophysiology, systemic psychophysiology (ranging from the peripheral nervous system to the neuroendocrine and immune systems), principles of human behavior that have emerged from psychophysiological analyses, applications, and methodology. The final section of the Handbook provides detailed coverage of emerging topics in psychophysiology, including functional magnetic resonance imaging. With respect to fundamental psychological processes, this comprehensive reference discusses theoretical advances, empirical findings, and methodological developments and standards.
The scope and coverage of psychophysiology have expanded tremendously since the first edition of this book. This expanded second edition of the Handbook of Psychophysiology provides both a context for and coverage of the biological bases of cognition, emotion, and behavior.
Psychophysiological methods, paradigms, and theories offer entry to a biological cosmos that does not stop at skins edge, and this essential reference is designed as a road map for every explorer of this cosmos.
