The changing electrical activity of the skin has been used as the basis of the feedback signal for the various measures of electrodermal activity (EDA). Equipment monitoring EDA has been used in a variety of clinical, nonclinical, and research settings: work has been done with hypertensives,2 phobic individuals,3 and women in labor,4 and technique has also been applied to studies of the orienting response.
