Title: Dissociation : Vol. 2, No. 3, p. 160-168 : Dissociation and state-specific psychophysiology during the nineteenth century
Author: Alvarado, Carlos S.
Abstract: This paper reviews examples of state-specific psychophysiology in nineteenth century reports of dissociative disorders. These cases occurred in the context of rapid developments both in neurology and in the understanding of phenomena suggesting the possible influence of the mind, emotions, or psychological states on general health and specific bodily functions (e.g., the study of hypnosis and hysteria). It is argued that interest in such cases was part of a general concern with mind-body interactions. The explanations offered to account for these cases reflected different orientations to the mind-body problem prevalent during this era.
