Abstract : Physiologic data were collected in experiments to determine the extent to which autonomic responses can be evoked in sleeping subjects. The results indicate that no autonomic arousal occurs during sleep in response to verbal stimuli in the form of conditioned nonsense words. Low-level auditory stimulation does produce a generalized effect by altering sleep depth. (Author)
