Overview

The Handbook of Psychophysiology, 3rd Edition is an essential reference for students, researchers, and professionals in the behavioral, cognitive, and biological sciences. Psychophysiological methods, paradigms, and theories offer entry to a biological cosmos that does not stop at skin's edge, and this essential reference is designed as a road map for explorers of this cosmos. The scope and coverage in the Handbook have expanded to include both a context for and coverage of the biological bases of cognitive, affective, social, and developmental processes and behavior. In addition to updated coverage of the traditional areas of psychophysiology, coverage of the brain and central nervous system has been expanded to include functional neuroimaging, event related brain potentials, electrophysiological source dipole localization, lesion methods, and transcranial magnetic stimulation. It also includes a section on cellular and humoral systems with attention to the communication across and interactions among cellular, immunological, endocrinological, and neural processes.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The authors bring major cognition and behavior-related biology studies up to date, studies fundamental to the study of higher human functions...a valuable source of reference that includes the advances being made possible by techniques in neuroimaging and electrical brain activity."
Journal of Physiology and Biochemistry
Robert M. Carney
This is a comprehensive, if not exhaustive, review of psychophysiology. It is a revised, expanded, and much improved version of Principles of Psychophysiology edited by two of the three editors of this text. The purpose is to provide an overview of the field of psychophysiology, including a consideration of the theoretical and even philosophical foundations of modern psychophysiology. The inclusion of chapters concerning relatively new but highly promising approaches including brain-imaging technologies is also of great significance. I am sure that most researchers and teachers of psychophysiology will want a copy. Other psychologists interested in this area will find it highly informative. This book would be an excellent text for graduate classes in psychophysiology. However, I think that some of the chapters may be too advanced for undergraduate classes to use, at least as their primary textbook. It may be of interest to neuroscience researchers outside of ""mainstream"" psychophysiology who are doing human research. As indicated above, this is a highly comprehensive overview of a complex and diverse area of study. The text could be read in its entirety, or chapters may be read selectively by individuals with more defined interests. Each chapter stands alone as a comprehensive review of its topic. Clearly, this book is destined to become a classic in the field and it will sit on my shelf. Both the chapter topics and the contributors are very well chosen. There is very little to compare it to in the field.
