Why choose Psychophysiology?
Psychophysiology is a wonderfully interesting area of study.
Mind-body interaction, especially the mind's ability to positively
change the body, is one of the most exciting and important areas of
scientific study. It has been said that the 20th century was
about the scientific study of human behavior but the 21st century
will be about the scientific study of the mind.
