ENVIRONMENTAL SENSITIVITIES RESEARCH AT
JAMES MADISON UNIVERSITY
Welcome to the website for the James Madison University Environmental Sensitivities Research Team. We study the life impacts of living with Chemical Sensitivity (CS), also referred to as Environmental Illness, Chemical Injury, and Chemical Hypersensitivity. CS is sometimes associated with Electromagnetic Sensitivity. Together these make up Environmental Sensitivities.
The special issue of Ecopsychology dedicated to chemical and electrical hypersensitivities is now published! It will be available free online for 2 months at this site: http://online.liebertpub.com/toc/eco/9/2
