ETHNIC DIFFERENCES AMONG HOUSEWIVES IN PSYCHOPHYSICAL AND SKIN POTENTIAL RESPONSES TO ELECTRIC SHOCK.
From earlier work on the effects of instructional sets, it was hypothesized that subcultural differences in attitudes toward pain should be reflected in psycho-physiological correlates. Yankee,Expand

The pain perception profile: A psychophysical approach to the assessment of pain report
Methods currently used to assess clinical pain report provide, at best, only qualitative information about the pain experience. This paper describes alternative quantitative methods for theExpand

The role of regression and range effects in determination of the power function for electric shock
A scale for the apparent intensity of electric shock applied to the forearm was derived from cross-modality matching functions relating noise level, number, and force of handgrip to both line lengthExpand
