Interpretation of the pinched point position in human skin memristor measurements

Conference paper
Part of the IFMBE Proceedings book series (IFMBE, volume 65)


It is shown that human skin acts like a memristor but systematic studies on skin memristance are not published, yet. If e.g., a low frequency voltage is applied to human skin and the current is measured, a hysteresis loop can be seen in the voltage-current plot. In skin measurements, the pinched point of the hysteresis loop can be shifted from the coordinate origin. In this paper, possible reasons for this observation shall be investigated and interpreted by the use of simulation. Two example measurements on human skin are presented, as well.
