"A recent study of opinion among industrial psychologists revealed a very general agreement that a course on the several fields would serve as an excellent orientation for the graduate student. While there have been several textbooks written by single authors for such a course, the editor feels that psychology is now so specialized that it is difficult for one writer to survey adequately the significant developments in all the fields. The interpretation of a field to the student can best be accomplished by a writer who is himself immersed in that field. He then writes as an intimate insider rather than as an appraising outsider. His feeling for the right emphases, unless he is a one-sided worker in that field, can seldom be matched by that of an outsider. For these and other reasons, the editor believes that the textbook for this course should be in the nature of a symposium, written by contributors who have shown by their previous writings that they are very much at home in their respective fields. The order of the chapters in this volume is somewhat arbitrary. They may be taught in almost any preferred sequence. The adopted sequence places the main theoretical fields first, beginning with the developmental approach. The chapters on differential psychology end this first section, since individual differences emerge from developmental causes, from social factors, and from causes that tend to induce abnormalities. The transition from differential to educational and clinical problems is very direct. The divisions of other applied fields and their order were agreed upon after much exchange of ideas on the part of the contributors. The more special fields of physiological psychology and aesthetics do not fit readily into the sequence of the first section on theoretical fields. The somewhat abstruse subject of points of view comes appropriately after the more concrete material, when the student is more ready to appreciate the reasons for divergent systematic approaches to psychology. The omission of a chapter on experimental psychology may seem a serious oversight to some readers. The term "experimental psychology" is losing its traditional meaning, however, as a separate and distinct field. All fields are becoming more and more experimental, and so the term is coming to refer to a method rather than a field"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

"This book constitutes, in a sense, a revision of the author's Introduction to Physiological Psychology, published in 1934, but its advance over that work is sufficient to warrant the new title. Besides adding new chapters and sections to give the book a more comprehensive scope, the content of the earlier treatment has been entirely reworked so as to sharpen the exposition. Discussion of individual topics is brief, but is annotated by footnote references to authoritative sources and by supplementary reading lists at chapter endings. As a text, the book has a two-fold purpose: (1) to provide psychologists with a survey of pertinent physiological fact and theory, and (2) to give a systematic orientation to the study of psychophysiology. Both of these are necessary objectives. Even students with considerable background in physiology and neurology are unlikely to have had emphasis on those topics of most use to them as psychologists. The systematic treatment of the problems of psychophysiology is equally essential, for without it this difficult field appears very chaotic. Such systematization can be accomplished in several ways. The author has used the concept of homcostasis as a basic integrating principle, and has considered the neuromuscular adjustments of the total organism as acting similarly to those of more limited organ systems in the maintenance of essential "steady" states. Treatments of the mechanisms of learning, emotion and thought draw upon the constructs of motor psychology, which asserts that all behavioral adjustments, including those of "consciousness," have motor accompaniments. The teacher who wishes to emphasize instead the central control mechanisms or the sensory processes may readily do so, as the system preferred by the author is concentrated into one part of the book. The text is intended to cover the content of a full year course, and is divided into four parts. Teachers who used the previous edition in semester courses have indicated several feasible combinations of parts. These are: (a) Parts I and II, for those primarily interested in sensory process; (b) Parts II and III, for those more interested in central control mechanisms; (c) Parts I and IV, for those interested in the motor aspects of total performance. In addition, it is possible to select particular chapters from all sections with a more general end in view"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
Introduction to physiological psychology by Larry Freeman( Book )

15 editions published between 1892 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In line with present trends and developments the psychophysiology of "sensory" function has been condensed and subordinated, whereas that of "motor" function has been amplified and extended; the once popular "mind-body problem" receives but scant attention; the attempt to build up neural "correlates" around such convenient mental abstractions as the sensation, the perception, the emotion, the idea, and the thought is conspicuous by its absence. The author's reasons for this latter shift are readily understood; when psychologists have settled among themselves the question of how many fundamentally different ways of acting are possessed by the total organism, there will be some point in discussing the physiological basis of each type in a separate chapter. But until agreement is reached, or until more is known of the subtleties of neural integration, it is better to approach the organization of behavior from a neurophysiological angle than from a strictly psychological one
