CONDITIONING OF DEPRESSIVE RESPONSES
Abstract:An attempt was made to condition depressive responses through exposure to statements of depressing events. Behavioral measures of depression involved voice intensity, response latency and duration, as well as check list ratings and verbal reports. Experimental and demand characteristics groups differed significantly in reports of depression compared with the neutral group. Results were discussed in terms of demand characteristics of the experiment, characteristics of the conditioning stimuli, and sensitivity of the response measures.
