Psychophysiologic Strategies in Laboratory Research

Part of the The Springer Series in Behavioral Psychophysiology and Medicine book series (SSBP)


Psychophysiologic laboratory research has begun to play an important role in the study of biobehavioral aspects of cardiovascular regulation and putative disease processes. Progress has been made both in specifying task characteristics (e. g., psychological versus physical Stressors; active coping versus passive tasks) and in defining the experimental context of these tasks (e. g., instructions; experimenter effects; sociocultural factors; social interactions). Nevertheless, discrepant findings often occur between ostensibly similar experiments, in part because important differences in task characteristics have not always been recognized.
