Editorial Reviews

`[The author] has taken systematic care to introduce relevant electrical, physiologic, and psychological concepts in operational language for the widest possible professional audience....Any clinician not thoroughly experienced in respiratory psychophysiology will leave these pages with profound new insight and direction.' From the foreword by Charles F. Stroebel, Institute for Advanced Studies in Behavioral Medicine, Connecticut
