Yes, but I was referring to the recording part of the experiment, rather
than the stimulus presentation. Here are some references to Heath's work
from the period culled from one of my favorite texts in neuroscience,
Physical Control of the Mind, by Jose Delgado, M.D. (of course):
Heath, R.G. (1963). Electrical self-stimulation of the brain in man. Am.
J. Psychiat. 120: 571-7.
Heath, R.G., R.R. Monroe, and W. Mickle (1955). Stimulation of the
amygdaloid nucleus in a schizophrenic patient. Am. J. Psychiat. 111:
Must reading for anyone who was inspired to go into science as a result of
the movie, Frankenstein.
