VIGILANCE DECREMENT AND SPEED OF HABITUATION OF THE GSR COMPONENT OF THE ORIENTING RESPONSE

Authors


Abstract

The present study was designed to investigate the relationship between auditory vigilance performance and speed of habituation of the GSR component of the orienting response (OR) to auditory stimuli. Fast habituators (n = 7) displayed a greater rate of vigilance decrement than slow habituators (n = 7), suggesting a more rapid onset of a phase of low arousal in these subjects.
