Heart rate data during systematic desensitization, implosive therapy, and an avoidance response placebo procedure for the treatment of analog anxiety are presented to supplement previously reported basal skin conductance results. Repeated conditioned stimulus exposure did result in general arousal reduction under desensitization and implosion regimes, while conditioned stimulus exposure paired with visualized avoidance responding was related to arousal maintenance.
