Richard Harvey, Ph.D. Historical Links Between Biofeedback and Psychoneuroimmunology Level: Introductory Sunday, Nov. 6th , 1 hour Biofeedback as a field historically applies techniques that interact with mind and body to improve health as well as performance. Psychoneuroimmology is a term that implies the relationship between thoughts (the mind) and the immune system (the body). We have known for thousands of years that if you are under stress you tend to get more colds and if you are in a good mood you tend to heal faster. Whereas research- ing the relationship between the mind and the body is not new, advances in molecular biology and immunocytochemistry have allowed us to understand in a more precise way the connections between thoughts, emotions and the immune response. We will explore mind-body-immune relationships as they may apply to biofeedback research and practice in this introductory workshop.
