Psychophysiology is the branch of physiology that relates mental (psyche) with physical (physiological) processes and can be termed as the scientific study of the interaction between mind and body. It shows psychosomatic ailments including migraine headaches, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), arthritis, ulcerative colitis, and heart disease, that are partly induced by emotional factors such as anxiety, stress, and fear. Applied psychophysiology focuses on the effects of emotional states on the central nervous system, by observing and recording data on such physiological processes as sleep rhythms, heart rate, gastrointestinal functioning, immune response, and brain function.
