The Human Response: An Empirical, Normative Evaluation of Nervous Psychophysiological Paramaters & Dimensions as a Measure of Health.
Allen, Roger J.
A report is given of research conducted to determine the relationship between the response of the human body to stress and the incidence of physical diseases. Seven areas of the nervous system were tested in the study: cardiovascular, electrodermal, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, piloerectors, pupilomaetric, and respiratory. The results of the tests are reported in both narrative and tabular form. It is suggested that this data be used for the evaluation of disease prevention and health promotion activities and programs.
