This chapter describes a collaborative interdisciplinary program to elucidate the links and underlying mechanisms of psychophysiological relations and their implications for health. This ranges from psychophysiological studies in humans to neural and physiological investigations in animals. Work on basic patterns of autonomic control has helped clarify psychophysiological relationships, their links to multiple levels of functional organization, and their implications for health. Additional studies of brain mechanisms have revealed important neural systems and processes that may underlie cognitive contributions to anxiety and autonomic control.

Keywords:   multiple levels of processing, nervous system, collaboration, interdisciplinary research, brain-behavior relationships, health, social psychology, psychobiology
