Editorial Reviews


Psychobiology of Physical Activity is a long-awaited contribution to the understanding of the physiological connection between motor movement/exercise, mood, health, and brain functioning. It takes the reader beyond the fragmentary patchwork of psychobiological knowledge of the past and presents a well-coordinated journey through the neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neurochemistry of physical activity and the resultant health benefits.
--Robert Perna & Kerri MontoPsycCRITIQUES, 2006, vol. 51, 34. 

I relished the opportunity to review this book given my interdisciplinary research and teaching interests. On balance, there is much to gain by reading this volume and it may lead other readers to reflect and rethink their own approach to studying human physical activity behaviour.
-- Susan H. BackhouseSport and Exercise Psychology Review, 3 (2), 51-53.

This book will introduce many of us to exciting new territory.
-- Roy J. Shephard, Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism, 31 (6), 762.

More About the Author

Dr Ekkekakis, a kinesiology professor at Iowa State University, has been researching the pleasure and displeasure responses resulting from exercise and physical activity for the past 25 years. His current research seeks answers to two important unsolved mysteries, one in neuroscience (i.e., the psychobiological mechanism of the sense of fatigue) and the other in public health (i.e., the reasons for the avoidance of physical activity). His publications span the fields of affective psychology, psychometrics, personality and individual differences, psychophysiology, health psychology, behavioral and preventive medicine, applied physiology, and exercise science. His research has been covered by some of the most prestigious news organizations in the world, including Reuters, CNN, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post.
