Sample text

This similarity between the control group and hysterico-psychopaths is of interest because, as noted in the Introduction, the normal sample was drawn from a population which was biased towards greater hysterical predisposition than the general population. There will be occasion to refer to this point again later (Chapter 5, p. ). Breakdown of dysthymia and hysterico-psychopathy into its various subgroups is shown in Tables 2 and 3, respectively. In the case of dysthymia this could only be done for the civilian group, AROUSABILITY AND THE SEDATION THRESHOLD 21 because of the preponderance of anxiety states in military dysthymics.

Briefly, the procedure involved a 20-minute rest period, during which blood pressure was recorded every 3 minutes. Further readings were then taken at 1-minute intervals following a subcutaneous injection of 25 mg of Mecholyl. The four measures from that experiment included here were as follows: Basal Systolic BP. The mean of the last three pre-injection readings. Basal Diastolic BP. Calculated as for basal systolic pressure. Mean Systolic BP Change. The mean of the minute systolic readings taken during the post-injection period minus the basal systolic pressure.

Relationship between alpha index and sedation threshold, illustrating curvilinear nature of regression. between anxiety and habituation rate of the GSR, a measure that may provide a better index of arousability than skin conductance level. Unfortunately, it was not possible to derive measures of either spontaneous GSR's or habituation rate from the skin conductance data, although attention should be paid to these parameters in future investigations. The restriction of significant relationships to measures of reactivity rather than basal level of autonomie activity confirmed the expectation that the sedation threshold would correlate most highly with indices that maximized differences in arousability.
