Abstract : The document contains reports in the following areas: (1) Neurohormonal and neurophysiological mechanisms related to integrative and adoptive central nervous system functions. (2) The relationship of central and peripheral nervous system activity to conditional reflex patterns and the application of a cybernetic model in the evaluation of the various parameters of conditional reflexes particularly as this concerned the cardiovascular system. (In connection with this, there was ample opportunity to review a wide variety of evaluative techniques of hemodynamic functions.) (3) The application of conditional reflex methods and techniques of evaluating dimensions of central nervous system activity of value in studying individual differences in central nervous system reactivity. (4) The utilization of conditional reflex methods in the clinical evaluation of psychopathology, neuropathology and physiopathology.
