Scope and Purpose

The International Journal of Psychophysiology is the official journal of the International Organization of Psychophysiology, and provides a respected forum for the publication of high quality original contributions on all aspects of psychophysiology. The journal is interdisciplinary and aims to integrate the neurosciences and behavioral sciences. Empirical, theoretical, and review articles are encouraged in the following areas:

  • Cerebral psychophysiology: including functional brain mapping and neuroimaging with event-related potentials (ERPs), positron emission tomography (PET), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalographic studies
  • Autonomic functions: including bilateral electrodermal activity, pupillometry and blood volume changes
  • Cardiovascular psychophysiology: including studies of blood pressure, cardiac functioning and respiration
  • Somatic psychophysiology: including muscle activity, eye movements and eye blinks

Manuscripts will detail the study of physiological measures such as the ones mentioned, or others, along with a variety of behavioral measures that may include sensation and perception, learning, memory, evolution and development of behaviour, motivation and emotion, aggression and defence, interhemispheric relations, information processing, sleep, stress, psychopharmacology and psychophysiological disorders.

Also considered will be papers on clinical psychophysiology (cognitive, affective and psychotic disorders and psychopharmacology), including applied psychophysiology (e.g., ergonomics) and effects of behavior on immune function.
