Dataset Open Access
This dataset consists of a three-block experiment conducted with 29 healthy unmedicated participants (17 females and 12 males aged 25.3 +/- 3.7). The experiment contains a classical (Pavlovian) discriminant delay fear conditioning test. CSs are 2 full-screen fractals of approximate brightness, contrast, and spatial frequency. US is a train of electric square pulses delivered with a constant current stimulator on participants' dominant forearm through a pin-cathod/ring-anode configuration. SOA between the CS and US is 3.5 s. The first 2 blocks are fear acquisition, with 15 CS+US+, 15 CS+US-, and 30 CS- in each block, and the last block is an extinction phase with 20 CS- and 20 CS+ trials without US delivery. The order of trials in each block was randomized. No fixation cross was presented during CS. ITI is randomly determined on each trial to be an integer between 7 - 11 s. During ITI, a black fixation cross was presented in the center of a grey background (RGB 0.7, 0.7, 0.7). The blocks were recorded on the same day with a self-paced break. For all three blocks this dataset contains skin conductance responses (SCR), electrocardyogram (ECG), respiration, pupil size (PSR), and gaze coordinates measurements.
