Part of the NATO Conference Series book series (NATOCS, volume 5)


In 1975, Ray and Brown [1J introduced a research paradigm combining systems analysis methods with those of ethology, behavioral psychology, and kinesiology. Conceptual foundations for this work follow Kantor [2] in stressing both the continuity of behavior and the correspondence of multiple behavioral modes (i.e., skeletal, tendonal, muscular, glandular, autonomic, etc.).
