This volume derives from the proceedings of the ‘First International Symposium on Cardiovascular-Respiratory and -Somatic Integration in Psycho-physiology’, held in Schloss Rauischholzhausen, West Germany on November 17–19, 1983. This conference, sponsored by NATO’s Scientific Affairs Division and the University of Giessen, provided for experts from diverse disciplines to come together to discuss various aspects of the psycho-physiology of cardiovascular integration with respiratory and somatomotor systems.
