A series of possible classical conditioning experiments is suggested, based on a scheme for basing experiments on the origin and delivery modes of conditioned and unconditioned stimuli. Many of the experimental structures recommended are either rare or have never been performed, and should lead to a better understanding of psycho-physiological phenomena and perhaps give insight into the extent to which autogenous techniques may enable conscious monitoring and/or control of processes normally considered involuntary. 28 pp.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation paper series. The paper was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 2003 that captured speeches, memorials, and derivative research, usually prepared on authors' own time and meant to be the scholarly or scientific contribution of individual authors to their professional fields. Papers were less formal than reports and did not require rigorous peer review.
