    Abstract:
    During operant control of forearm blood flow (FBF) cortical alpha was recorded. A significant inverse relationship was found between FBF and alpha activity. Decreased FBF was associated with increased alpha. One possible reason that several investigators found spurious relationships between alpha and 2 other cardiovascular parameters, heart rate and blood pressure, is that the range of response for HR and BF is relatively restricted compared to that of alpha. © 1980.
