In hmolscience, sociophysiology, or socio-physiology, refers to the study of sociology using a physiology basis or perspective; or the combined “social ethology” plus “social energetics” (Emile Waxweiler, 1906). [1]

An American version of “sociophysiology”, a French-unique name, seems to be the physiology-based sociology (e.g. Sociology 23) that American physiologist Lawrence Henderson taught at Harvard in the 1930s (see: Harvard Pareto circle); through he did not call it by this name.

The following are related quotes:

Sociophysiology is social ethology [defined via] social energy [or] physiology reaction phenomena due to mutual excitation of individuals of the same species.”
— Emile Waxweiler (1906), Outline of Sociology [1]
