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:

ECG Electrocardiogram Amplifier for MRI

The ECG100C-MRI Electrocardiogram Amplifier records electrical activity generated by the heart and will reliably record ECG from humans, animals and isolated organ preparations. The amplifier output can be switched between normal ECG output and R-wave detection. The R-wave mode outputs a smoothed pulse with the occurrence of each R-wave. The exact timing of the R-wave […]
