Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of reduced sensory input on two task conditions. The effects were measured in terms of the electrophysiological activity of the autonomic nervous system and the skeletal muscle system. A Vigil group reported the movements of an autokinetic light a Rest group simply relaxed. The autonomic indices revealed significantly higher activity for the Vigil Group, thus supporting Duffy and Malmos hypothesis concerning the importance of task demands in determining level of physiological activity.
