Abstract : Subjects who were exposed to 5 min of perceptual deprivation (unpatterned light and white noise) or to a similar duration of visual, auditory, or kinesthetic deprivation showed no significant changes in the tachistoscopic recognition threshold for digits relative to two control groups. Similar results were obtained in a second experiment employing a condition of sensory deprivation (darkness and silence). (Author)
