Skin resistance is ultimately measured by the galvanic response of skin. Electrodes being attached to fingers of whichever hand is preferable do this. It seems that the electrical conductance of the body is fairly low when in a calm and undisturbed condition. Sweat has seemed to be the basis of a good performing galvanic skin response sensor to detect

Unformatted text preview: electrical skin resistance. Dry skin results in high resistance while sweating causes the electrical skin resistance to drop significantly. This shows that certain emotions such as excitement, shock and stress can result in a change of skin conductivity....
