Skin Conductance Response to Punishment as a Predictor and Correlate of Learning to Avoid Two Classes of Punishment
Waid, William M.
Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 85, 5, 498-504, Oct 76
Twenty-six subjects were exposed to a period of noxious stimulation and subsequently performed a task that incidentally involved learning to avoid one of two types of punishment, electric shock and monetary loss. Results support Lykken's theory of the development of sociopathic behavior and Aronfreed's more general conceptualization of aversive control in human socialization. (Editor/RK)
