The book represents a continuation of a series of books andmeetings dealingwith the physiology and pathophysiology ofcontrol systems published during the last two decades.Preferentially , those control systems are treated whichplay a dominant role in the somato-vegetative adaptation tophysical and psychical activation, i.e. the respiratory, thecardiovascular and the motor systems. In contrast to themajority ofpresent publications in these fields, the bookplaces main emphasis not so much on the recent findings ineach of these special areas, but rather on the interactions,correlations and coordinations between the systems, thuscovering topics which are necessarily neglected by thecurrent extremely specialized research. This intention wasrealized by the contribution of leading representatives fromdifferent specialized laboratories from many countries. Inthis way the different lists of references provide a goodaccess to further, more special information. One main topicwas the rhythmicity in the different systems as an indicatorof interrelations and a principle of coordination. Theindividual contributions extend from cellular mechanisms andfiner localization within the brain until mathematicaltreatment of complex systems and whole systems function. Afinal section deals with physiologicalandpathophysiological applications in man, as a new trend withrapidly growing clinical relevances. The book is dedicatedto the memory of an important protagonists of integrativephysiology, Chandler Mel Brooks, whoseconcluding article on"The essence of life" touches the basic principles ofresearch on single mechanisms.
