Classical reward conditioning of the heart rate response to auditory stimulation in 3 month old infants.

Abstract
The present study was conducted in order to determine whether or not HR could be conditioned in 3 month old infants.

The relative scarcity of conditioning studies measuring autonomic responses prompted a study by Clifton (1970, unpublished data) which yielded inconclusive results. The present study was designed as a replication of the Clifton study with several modifications
