March 2011 | 128 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Psychophysiology methods have become very important in the past decade or so with the increase in the understanding of the relationship between human physiology and behavior. As social behavior research has ventured further into biological waters, more detailed understanding of these methods has become necessary.

This volume meets this need in a very accessible way for the advanced level student upwards. Written by a team of well recognized and well-published social psychophysiologists, it leads the reader through some complex but essential areas of understanding for anyone needing to investigate the human biological system and social behavior including the autonomic nervous system, endocrine measures and electromyography.
