Exp. I with 10 male Ss showed differential facilitatory effects of 2 tone intensities on the amplitude of the knee jerk. The more intense tone produced the greatest facilitation when compared to the nonfacilitated response. Adaptation of these facilitatory effects was visible during 20 presentations. Exp. II with 8 male Ss indicated that the facilitation of the reflex by an intense tone adapts for at least 50 presentations. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
