Basic Research of Input Support Device by Using Sympathetic Skin Response
SSR is a biomedical signal, that reflects the activity of the sym-pathetic nervous system, and can be affected by cognitive thinking an decision making. We hypothesized that the SSR response could be used as a switch for an input support device for the ALS patients. In this paper, we investigated whether or not the SSR response could be used as a switch for an input support device for the ALS patients.
