Skin conductance response (SCR) habituation to loud tones was tested in chronically anxious patients and controls matched for age, sex and occupation. The results replicate Lader and Wing's finding of slowed response habituation in the patient group. These results are discussed in light of the Lader and Wing model attributing anxiety-proneness to an innate slowness in habituating to stimulation. Two factors which in themselves could cause slowed response habituation were present in the patient… CONTINUE READING
