The Structural-Functional Analysis of Interbehavioral Systems
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  in stressing both the continuity of behavior and the correspondence of multiple behavioral modes (i.e., skeletal, tendonal, muscular, glandular, autonomic, etc.).
