This volume brings together two significant areas of research, psychophysiology and the application of information technology to the office and other 'electronic workplaces'. It is the first book in the field to focus on psychophysiological aspects of user-system interaction. The contributors, all internationally well known, draw together social psychological, cognitive and biological aspects of the electronic workplace. They give a comprehensive review of relevant studies, including stress in the office environment and the effects of the VDU, using electrocorticial, heart rate, oculomotor and biochemical measures of human responses, and make recommendations for future research and practice in the field of user-system interaction, thus making the book of particular value to both professionals and researchers in industrial psychology and psychophysiology, computer scientists, industrial designers and information technology consultants.
