Ambulatory skin conductance

Organisers: Joyce Westerink and Martin Ouwerkerk, Phillips Research

Schedule: Thursday 28th August 11:10 - 12:30, Haakzaal

New wrist-based skin conductance devices are now emerging. The first studies with these new (prototype) devices have been completed. The dynamics of skin conductance at the wrist differs from skin conductance measured at the standard locations such as the fingers, or the palm of the hand. This may open new application areas, but it may also hamper acceptance by the establishment.  The time is ripe to organize a symposium where both the established skin conductance experts are invited as well as the researchers that have experience with the wrist-based skin conductance devices. Also combining skin conductance at the wrist with other sensors, such as heart rate at the wrist, accelerometry, and skin temperature can open new venues of measuring behavior.
