187 – Electrodermal Response Guidelines – EDA100C (GSR100C)

This application note explains how to record electrodermal activity (EDA/GSR) and observe electrodermal response (EDR) changes with the EDA100C Electrodermal Activity amplifier, GSR100C Galvanic Skin Response amplifier, or TEL100C telemetry module of the MP System (with MP100 or MP150). The MP System can measure both subtle and sudden changes in electrodermal activity, based on your protocols.

BIOPAC recommends the following paper as an excellent reference for guidelines for EDA, GSR, EDR, SCL, and SCR:

Current: Psychophysiology, 49 (2012), 1017–1034.
