Summary Psychophysiology methods have become very important in the past decade or so with the increase in the interest in understanding the human biological system and its relationship to behavior. As social behavior research has ventured further into biological waters, more applied methodological understanding has become much more in demand. This volume meets this demand 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 nervous system, endocrine measures and electromyography. This text will be perfect for all advanced students and researchers in social and personality psychology using social psychophysiological methods as part of their studies or research
