Methods in Psychological Physiology, Volume 3: Electrical Stimulation Research Techniques is a compilation of papers that focus on the different theories and techniques of electrical stimulation and its applications to psychology.
The first five chapters cover different kinds of electrical stimulation, their basic principles, and techniques involved. These include extracellular and intracellular stimulation, the microstimulation technique, and the stimulation of the brain. Chapters 6 to 9 discuss the beneficial effects and uses of these stimulation techniques, such as motivation and reinforcement, memory research, its relation to brain lesions, and the implications for electroconvulsive therapy. The last two chapters talk about the electrical stimulation of the peripheral nerve and the grid and peripheral shock stimulation.
The book is recommended for psychotherapists who wish to learn more about the use of electrical stimulation techniques as treatment, and for neurologists who would like to further understand the effects of electrical stimulation.
