Professional Interests

Although I am retired, I still maintain my professional interests in behavioral medicine and behavioral physiology. My interest in the former is primarily concerned with the application of operant conditioning to the treatment of urinary or fecal incontinence; and the application of operant  conditioning to the treatment of a variety of cardiovascular disorders. My interests in the latter are: 1) in the establishment of the principle that autonomically-mediated responses can be learned; and 2) an understanding of the mechanisms mediating diurnal variations in the circulation.
