Abstract:

The report presents the results of four male adult subjects exposed to sensory isolation through water-immersion for three trials totaling about 20 hours. The results presented are EKG frequencies taken before and after time-estimation hacks throughout the runs. EKG frequency taken before time hacks showed a decrease across trials that taken after time hacks displayed a rather steady picture. These results were viewed as evidence for the notion that stress arousal may be ameliorated with experience while arousability may remain at the same level. Author
