This dataset includes pupil size response (PSR), skin conductance response (SCR), electrocardiogram (ECG) and respiration measurements. Also included are CS and US information, keypress responses, keypress response times and key correctness for each of 22 healthy unmedicated participants (7 males and 15 females aged 26.4+/-5.2 years) participating in a classical (Pavlovian) discriminant delay fear conditioning task. CS consists of two sine tones with constant frequency (220 Hz or 440 Hz, 50-ms onset and offset ramp). US is a train of electric square pulses delivered with a constant current stimulator (Digitimer DS7A, Digitimer, Welwyn Garden City, UK) on participants' dominant forearm through a pin-cathode/ring-anode configuration. SOA betwen the CS and US is 3.5 s. The ITI is randomly determined on each trial to be 7, 9, or 11 s.

Raw data are contained in data.zip and described in readme.txt. Pre-processed data are contained in data_pp.zip and described in readme_pp.txt. Data are stored as .mat files for use with MATLAB (The MathWorks Inc., Natick, USA) in a format readable by the PsPM toolbox (bachlab.org/pspm). All raw data files are saved in MATLAB 9.2 (R2017a) format, and all pre-processed data files are saved in MATLAB 9.6 (R2019a) format.
