Abstract : Records of gastrointestinal activity were obtained from 64 Ss while each viewed one of two colored pictures of food or one of two colored pictures of neutral geometric patterns. The recordings obtained by means of external electrodes placed in each of the four abdominal quadrants were taken during a 15-minute resting period and during the 5-minute period that the picture was presented. Non-parametric analysis of the four leads, considered both separately and combined, does not indicate any significant differences among the effects of the four pictures. However, there is a trend in the data for the duodenal lead to show its greatest response to one of the two food pictures. (Author)
