Abstract

The study briefly overlooks the rationale and relevance of the word association test, points to the increase in understanding association processes brought by simultaneous recording of physiological parameters and reports about an experiment demonstrating this approach.28 subjects (16 normals and 12 patients) were computer administered a testof word associations with response interval set to 15 seconds. During the test, skin conductance measures were recorded from the palmar sites of nondominant hand. Two stimulus protocols were compiled from 10 emotionally negative, 10 emotionally positive and 20 neutral words in such way that an neutral stimulus was always followed by an emotional one and protocol 2 contained emotional stimuli with valence opposite to that of protocol I in the same position. Both protocols were administered evenly across the sample and its subsets. Graphical and statistical analysis of response times and skin conductance reactions indicates that both the longest response times as well as highestamplitudes of skin conductance changes are elicited by the stimuli with negative emotional tone. These probably recall - in contrast with the positive stimuli - conflicting material, processing of which is marked by increasein cognitive activity and physiological activation. Despite a clear relationship between them, however, a hypothesis that each parameter reflects different component of the mental state induced by stimulation - the autonomous physiological reaction and psychological capacity for its regulation - isrelevant and open for further testing.
