Operant Conditioning to increase ventricular heart rate (VHR) was carried out in 3 subjects (Ss) with complete heart block. None of the Ss 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.
