Psycho-Biological Pathways, an Annual Workshop

3333 California Street, Laurel Heights S-1, The Chancellor’s Room
San Francisco, CA  94118

This workshop will provide an overview of immune, autonomic nervous system (ANS), and endocrine measures relevant for behavioral and mind-body research, emphasizing the role and measurement of the ANS under states of stress and relaxation. The program is geared toward social and behavioral scientists and trainees who plan to include physiological measures in future studies, as well as clinical researchers who are interested in using immunologic and neuro-endocrine measures in their research. The workshop aims to 1) provide participants with an overview of each biological system; 2) assist participants in determining which physiological measures best address their research questions and how to incorporate these measures into their research programs; 3) familiarize participants with methods for collecting specimens/data correctly, including information on logistical challenges in collecting these data and how to address them; and 4) provide guidance about how to analyze and interpret data when it comes back from the labIntended for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and other trainees. Co-sponsored by the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, with UCSF’s Center for Health and Community and the Health Psychology Program.
