Abstract

The dimensions of a 2 × 2 factorial design with 8 Ss per cell were injection of Flaxedil or saline, and paired or unpaired presentations of a tone CS and shock US. Rabbits, either immobilized by Flaxedil or run in the normal state, revealed reliable conditioning of heart-rate deceleration, blood pressure elevation, and neocortical desynchronization. The results suggested that the classically conditioned heart-rate deceleration is essentially autonomic, and that this heart-rate deceleration reflects a compensatory response to a sympathetically induced elevation in blood pressure.
