Abstract

An experiment was conducted to examine the effects of complete stimulus omission and interstimulus interval (ISI) variability on habituation of the skin conductance response. A new scoring technique allowed shorter ISIs to be used (0.5-1.5 s) than in previous studies. It was found that both stimulus omission and variation of a previously constant ISI had a significant effect on the course of habituation at short ISIs. The results are consistent with comparator models of habituation and suggest that participants encode the ISI of a series of stimuli presented as short ISIs.
