The Journal of Behavioral Medicine is a broadly conceived interdisciplinary publication devoted to furthering our understanding of physical health and illness through the knowledge and techniques of behavioral science. Application of this knowledge to prevention treatment and rehabilitation is also a major function of the journal which includes papers from all disciplines engaged in behavioral medicine research: psychology psychiatry sociology epidemiology anthropology health economics and biostatistics. Examples of typical research areas include: the study of appetitive disorders (alcoholism smoking obesity) that serve as physical risk factors; adherence to medical regimen and health maintenance behavior; pain self-regulation therapies and biofeedback for somatic disorders; sociocultural influences on health and illness; and brain-behavioral relationships that influence physiological function.
