Galvanic Skin Response(GSR)

About: Electronics DIY Club in wuxi China.

The Galvanic Skin Response Sensor (GSR - Sweating) allows you to measure the electrical conductance of the skin. Strong emotion will stimulate your sympathetic nervous system, which causes sweat glands produce more sweat. GSR can detect this strong emotion by simply connecting two electrodes(two fingers in one hand).
