Abstract

College undergraduates were identified as alexithymic or control, based ontheir scores on the Toronto Alexithymia Scale (TAS; Taylor, Ryan, & Bagby,1985). All subjects were presented standardized emotion-eliciting color slides for 6 s while facial muscle, heart rate, and skin conductance activitywere recorded. Stimuli were presented a second time while subjects were asked to provide emotion self-reports using a paper-and-pencil version of theSelf-Assessment Manikin (SAM; Lang, 1980) and to generate a list of words describing their emotional reaction to each slide. Consistent with the definition of alexithymia as a syndrome characterized, in part, by a deficit inthe identification of emotion states, high TAS subjects supplied fewer emotion-related words than did controls to describe their response to the slides. Alexithymics also indicated less variation along the arousal dimension of the SAM, produced fewer specific skin conductance responses and showed less heart rate deceleration to the slides, regardless of category. No valence-related differences between alexithymic and control subjects were noted.
