Evidence of emotional arousal obtained by attaching electrodes to any part of the skin and recording momentary changes in perspiration and other functions of the autonomic nervous system.

galvanic skin response

n
(Psychology) a change in the electrical resistance of the skin occurring in moments of strong emotion; measurements of this change are used in lie detector tests. Abbreviation: GSR

Noun1.galvanic skin response - a change in the electrical properties of the skin in response to stress or anxiety; can be measured either by recording the electrical resistance of the skin or by recording weak currents generated by the body
response, reaction - a bodily process occurring due to the effect of some antecedent stimulus or agent; "a bad reaction to the medicine"; "his responses have slowed with age"
lie detector - a polygraph that records bodily changes sometimes associated with lying

Our hypotheses in this study were as follows: We predicted that (a) when instructed to suppress images (no-think condition), repressors would show greater recognition reduction than would nonrepressors; (b) after watching motorbike accident video clips, repressors would show higher negative valence than would nonrepressors; and (c) repressors and nonrepressors would show no differences in degree of galvanic skin response.
