The Handbook of Psychophysiology has been the authoritative resource for more than a quarter of a century. Since the third edition was published a decade ago, the field of psychophysiological science has seen significant advances, both in traditional measures such as electroencephalography, event-related brain potentials, and cardiovascular assessments, and in novel approaches and methods in behavioural epigenetics, neuroimaging, psychoneuroimmunology, psychoneuroendocrinology, neuropsychology, behavioural genetics, connectivity analyses, and non-contact sensors. At the same time, a thoroughgoing interdisciplinary focus has emerged as essential to scientific progress. Emphasizing the need for multiple measures, careful experimental design, and logical inference, the fourth edition of the Handbook provides updated and expanded coverage of approaches, methods, and analyses in the field. With state-of-the-art reviews of research in topical areas such as stress, emotion, development, language, psychopathology, and behavioural medicine, the Handbook remains the essential reference for students and scientists in the behavioural, cognitive, and biological sciences.
Human eating has a biological purpose, and yet it cannot be understood purely in terms of biological need. This work brings together the best current thinking on human eating from diverse fields of psychology, covering physical and cultural factors influencing food choice, effects of infancy and childhood experiences on adult eating behavior, psychological effects of various foods, and the development, effects and treatment of eating disorders. Discusses theoretical models of the psychophysiology of human eating behavior, the effects of aging and cognitive changes on food choice, and changes in behavior due to consumption of alcohol, caffeine and sugar. Features thoughtful consideration of the biological, psychological and social aspects of eating disorders, obesity and undernutrition.
There is a long tradition of theory and research on emotions and social processes conducted within a biological framework. Emotions and social processes are intimately related, since emotions are a central feature of social interaction. The chapters in the first three parts of this volume demonstrate the wide range of approaches and problems in the biological psychology of emotions, followed by further chapters which examine the current state of research in those areas of social psychology in which psychophysiological methods or constructs are already prominent, or likely to play a role in contributing to a greater understanding of the subject.
Out of the broad arena of sport science and sport psychology, Roland A. Carlstedt presents a comprehensive collection on the neuroscience and associated psychophysiology that underlies and drives sport performance. Featuring sections ranging from the basics and foundations (anatomy and physiology) to the applied (assessment during competition, training, and mental training), Handbook of Sport Neuroscience and Psychophysiology is the first volume to provide students, researchers, practitioners, and coaches the latest knowledge on the brain, mind-body processes, and psychophysiological responding in the context of sport performance.
"The Oxford Handbook of Emotion Dysregulation is the first to consider the ED construct as distinct from what is known as emotion regulation (ER; a variety of automatic and volitional strategies, behaviors, and skills that are used to modulate emotional experiences and expressions), featuring chapters by scholars whose work is on the cutting edge of basic and clinical understanding of ED. This Handbook examines the ED construct from multiple viewpoints across levels of analysis and considers the role that ED plays in the expression of various forms of psychopathology. Chapters explore basic understanding of emotions and ED as transdiagnostic constructs (Part I); cognitive, behavioral, and social approaches to evaluating ED (Part II); neurobiological advances in our understanding of ED (Part III); associations between ED and psychopathology (Part IV); and assessment and treatment of ED (Part V). Part VI includes chapters on Conclusions and Future Directions. The Handbook can serve as a primary or complementary text for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level seminars/courses on emotion dysregulation and psychopathology more broadly"--

As new technology fuels the rapid growth of research in psychophysiology, it is essential that those new to the field receive a comprehensive introduction. Psychophysiology: Human Behavior and Physiological Response provides students with elementary information regarding the anatomy and physiology of various body systems, recording techniques, integrative reviews of literature, and concepts in the field. Highly accessible, this book fills a gap between edited handbooks that are often difficult for beginners, and journal articles that may also be a challenge to digest. In this new edition, John L. Andreassi incorporates: *a glossary of terms at the end of each chapter to help students learn definitions of novel terms introduced throughout the book; *a new chapter focusing on the proliferation of neuroimaging studies, including positron emission tomography (PET) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI); and *content changes in all chapters to cover new areas of research, as well as to update findings in traditional topics of interest. Upper level undergraduate and beginning graduate students in psychophysiology, biological psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and physiological psychology will benefit immensely from this important text, just as professionals new to psychophysiology will find this book exceptionally useful in their work.
An edited collection of works that describes the application of psychophysiological techniques to the study of human cognition. Offers a close examination of cognitive theory using psychophysiological measures. It illustrates how these measures can complement performance measures and how peripheral and central psychophysiological indices provide different, uniquely useful information. Chapters deal with serial, parallel and capacity models of information processing, attention, motor and mnemonic processing, language, cognitive development and aging.
This handbook deals with methods of assessing health status in children on all levels - physical, psychological, intellectual, temperamental, familial and educational. It also presents discussions of techniques used for specific health problems, and for screening and prevention.
Comprehensive handbook providing an overview of the theories, research and applications critical to Environmental Psychology. It aims to define the ongoing revolution in thinking about how the environment and psychology interact.
An up-to-date discussion of a wide and representative range of areas in a field of growing interest. The international contributors, many of whom are established authorities in the field, discuss applications to clinical issues and emotion theory.
While yoga was originally intended to be practiced for spiritual growth, there is an increasing interest in applying yoga in all areas of life. It is important to understand this ancient science and way of life through as many perspectives as possible (e.g., based on biomedical engineering). As its popularity and interest grows, more practitioners want to know about the proven physiological effects and uses in healthcare. The Handbook of Research on Evidence-Based Perspectives on the Psychophysiology of Yoga and Its Applications provides research exploring the theoretical and practical aspects of yoga therapy and its physiological effects from diverse, evidence-based viewpoints. The book adds in-depth information regarding the (1) physiological effects of yoga; (2) neurobiological effects of yoga meditation; (3) psychological benefits related to yoga, such as mental wellbeing; (4) molecular changes associated with yoga practice; and (5) therapeutic applications (for lymphedema, mental health disorders, non-communicable diseases, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and trauma, among other conditions). Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as pain management, psychotherapy, and trauma treatment, this book is ideally designed for yoga practitioners, physicians, medical professionals, health experts, mental health professionals, therapists, counselors, psychologists, spiritual leaders, academicians, researchers, and students.
