    Current research on chemotherapy‐induced nausea and vomiting in cancer patients is reviewed, and some hypotheses to explain why anticipatory and post‐chemotherapy nausea and vomiting appear are suggested. Methodological problems are also discussed. It is suggested that future research should focus on post‐chemotherapy nausea and emesis, rather than anticipatory nausea and emesis, in order to achieve a deeper understanding of the psychological factors involved in the development of chemotherapy‐induced nausea and vomiting. 1994 The British Psychological Society
