But one has to emphasize that only aware participants are included in the data analyses. 001. The right part in Figure 5D additionally shows US expectancies rated by the four unaware subjects. 5). 267. Therefore, it was suggested that these participants did not learn the associations between electric shocks in a distinct environment and justifies data exclusion of the subjects. 5 Contingency ratings After EEG-measurement, participants observed the screenshots again which were used in the test-phase (see Fig.
1 Skin conductance level Skin conductance measurements lasted throughout the whole conditioning phase. 0005, Brain Products GmbH, Munich, Germany). At first, a low pass filter of 1 Hz was applied to the signal. Data were segmented, starting with entering a virtual room and ending with leaving the room, the door was used as trigger. Application of electric shocks in the anxiety context is associated with transient changes of skin conductance. For that reason, time intervals beginning from each US onset and ending 10 s after each US were excluded from SCL calculations.
