The significance of the particular object, together with the instruction to deny one's knowledge, are known to evoke different electrodermal response amplitudes, heart rate changes, respiratory activity (assessed via the respiration line length), and pulse activity (assessed via the finger-pulse waveform length) than to objects that do not have a specific significance (Gamer, 2011).
