Effects of Two CS-US Intervals on Conditioning and Response Decay in Electrodermal Audiometry Electrodermal responses to low level, intermittently reinforced pure tones were obtained on 60 normal-hearing subjects. Thirty subjects received shock reinforcement 0.5 sec following onset of tone, while the remaining subjects received shock reinforcement 5 sec following onset of tone.

Electrodermal responses to low level, intermittently reinforced pure tones were obtained on 60 normal-hearing subjects. Thirty subjects received shock reinforcement 0.5 sec following onset of tone, while the remaining subjects received shock reinforcement 5 sec following onset of tone. Subject conditionability appeared to be unaffected by CS-US interval differences, but response decay increased as a function of CS-US interval.
