What Biological Measures Can Tell Us About Psychological Constructs
From Jeff Layne
Faculty, Psychology Department, CSU, Chico
Dr. Ennis, who has a PhD in Psychobiology, is interested in building bridges between the two disciplines. He begins by discussing the difficulty of accurately measuring such psychological phenomena as intelligence and anxiety, and then explains how the use of biological measures can increase measurement validity and provide information about unconscious processes. The three measurement tools Dr. Ennis presents are endocrine and immune measures, psychophysiology measures, and facial electromyography.
