    Abstract:
    There is evidence that the sympathetic nervous system plays an important role in the development of hypertension, and this has led to the experimental use of behavioral techniques in an attempt to control blood pressure. While still experimental, and somewhat controversial, this approach has provoked widespread interest. In this article, the authors explain the direct and indirect methods of behavioral techniques and discuss what has been accomplished with this approach.
