The brain response to visual and auditory conditioned stimuli and the modification of these responses by tranqllilizers, stimulants and depressants are described. Findings from electroencephalographic (EEG) studies of cats show reliable changes in EEG patterns during conditioning which were altered by atropine sulfate, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), chlorpromazine and trifluoperazine. The administration of 'acute, low doses-of diazepam produced spindle like bursts in monkeys' and baboons' EEG patterns from the frontal and parietal cortex. Higher doses caused a slowing'of 'the alpha rhythm and an increase in the low frequency electrical activity of the cortex and hippocampus. Similar change occurred 'initially during chronic administration; however, 'after five to sly. days of chronic use, alpha rhythm
