The present research investigated the effects of miscuing a shock stimulus on dishabituation of the skin conductance response and on the allocation of processing resources. In both experiments, a control group received 21 S1-S2 pairings intermixed with 23 S3-alone presentations. For the experimental group, S2 was miscued on trials 11 and 22 by its presentation following S3. In Experiment 1 (N = 48), S2 was a shock that was either "clearly discernible" or "uncomfortable but not painful". The… CONTINUE READING
