Abstract : The report summarizes data taken from four subjects exposed to multiple sensory deprivation runs. The water-immersion technique of isolation was employed and the subject run for three trials, spending an average of nearly seven hours per trial. Continuous EKG data obtained on each run was partitioned into 5% portions of total run and a constant part of these portions was compared. While earlier analyses had indicated a pattern of decreasing EKG across trials, the present more sensitive analysis shows the importance of an individual difference analysis. (Author)
