The Effect of Alcohol on the Autonomic Nervous System of Humans: Psychophysiological Approach

  • Paul Naitoh

Abstract

This chapter presents the modern psychophysiological approach to alcoholism to assist those who are actively engaged in this area and searching for new ways to hasten solutions of such medicosocial problems. Since the problems of alcoholism have been investigated under various scientific disciplines, it is not too presumptuous to assume that the scientific background of research workers on alcoholism is necessarily heterogeneous, covering a wide spectrum of disciplines.
