PSYCHOBIOLOGICAL MECHANISMS IN COMPLEX MENTAL PROCESSES AND THEIR CHANGES WITH AGE.
RIMOLDI, H.J.A.; AND OTHERS
INTERRELATIONS AMONG PHYSIOLOGICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL VARIABLES OPERATING DURING PROBLEM-SOLVING TRIALS WERE STUDIED. A SIMULTANEOUS ANALYSIS OF THESE VARIABLES AIMS AT A STUDY OF STRESSES DEVELOPING WHEN SUBJECTS ATTEMPT PROBLEM-SOLVING. QUESTION-STUDY INTERPRETIVE TECHNIQUES AND PROBLEMS REFERENCED IN EARLIER REPORTS (ED 003 005 AND ED 003 006) WERE USED. CARDIAC RATES WERE RECORDED CONTINUOUSLY FROM 5 MINUTES BEFORE TO 5 MINUTES AFTER PROBLEM ADMINISTRATION. BASELINE CARDIAC RATES WERE COMPUTED FOR SUCCESSIVE TIMES. PSYCHOLOGICAL AND PHYSIOLOGICAL DATA RELATED TO ALL THE PROBLEMS WERE COLLECTED AND ANALYZED. FOR THE SAKE OF BREVITY, FINDINGS FROM ONLY ONE PROBLEM WERE PRESENTED. PERFORMANCE CURVES WERE PRESENTED WHICH INDICATED THAT THE PSYCHOLOGICAL AND PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESSES WERE HIGHLY PERSONAL. THEY ALSO INDICATED THAT ATTEMPTS TO INTERPRET PROBLEM-SOLVING ABILITY BY ANALYZING PROBLEM SOLUTIONS WOULD BE MISLEADING. DIRECTIONS AND PLANS FOR CONTINUED RESEARCH WERE REPORTED. (WN)
