Statistical model research by an IMES faculty member and an HST student improves analysis of skin conductance

By accounting for sweat physiology, method can make better use of electrodermal activity for tracking subconscious changes in physical or emotional state. Electrodermal activity (EDA) — the sweat-induced fluctuations of skin conductance made famous in TV dramatizations of lie-detector tests — can be a truly strong indicator of subconscious, or…
