Abstract

A new field of endeavor for applied psychology is the development of behavioral medicine. One of its applications lies in rehabilitation therapy, in the study and use of EMG biofeedback for the treatment of the neuromuscular disorders of stroke hemiplegia. The background of this work is reviewed, and problems are outlined that require exploration (e.g., whether biofeedback works best in conjunction with physical therapy, what are the best techniques, and what kind of patient will respond).
