Abstract:

Recordings of gastrointestinal activity were obtained from 24 pairs of Ss during a rest period and while the experimental Ss performed a noise avoidance task. For the experimental Ss gastrointestinal motility as measured by amplitude showed significant increases during the task. The control Ss, unaware of the task and subjected to the same noises as their partners, showed no increases in gastrointestinal motility. Author
