Differential semantic conditioning of somatic responses was studied in three experiments for its theoretical importance and for its practical possibilities in improving the detection of deception. The conditioned stimuli were the concepts of true and false respectively, while the unconditioned stimulus was a loud tone. The procedure was successful for the GSR in particular. Although confusional tactics were effective, their effectiveness was reduced by the conditioning procedure, which itself was effective only if the tone was loud.
