Biofeedback Control of Stomach Acid Secretions and Gastrointestinal Reactions
In the past fifteen years the focus of biofeedback research with humans has been directed toward the modification of psychophysiological and medical disorders which could be conveniently monitored from the surface of the body. Research on such problems as headaches (Budzynski, Stoyva, & Adler, 1970), epilepsy (Sterman, MacDonald, & Stone, 1974), and stress related disorders (Benson, Rosen, Marzetta, & Klemchuk, 1974) has produced encouraging results with such recording methods.
