Evaluation of an intracardiac limit of learned heart rate control

Abstract

Operant conditioning to increase ventricular heart rate (VHR) was carried out in 3 subjects with complete heart block. None of the subjects increased VHR consistently. This finding suggests that operant conditioning of VHR is possible only when the conduction path between atria and ventricles is not interrupted.
