Noun1.electrodermal 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"

Alas, the quantified state's interventionist mandate remains just as presumptuous in cases where the data is more solid--say Gross National Electrodermal Response or Aggregate Shower Hours.
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).

Reported and observed symptoms, electrodermal response, heart rate, skin temperature, surface electromyogram, respiratory rate, contrast sensitivity, and the Brown-Peterson cognitive test were used and compared between cases and controls and between test substances (glue, body wash solution, dryer sheet) and control substances (unscented shampoo and clean air).
More specifically, it took the best part of a century for psycho-physiologists to agree on such matters as the "rise-time" of an electrodermal response, and the natural cycle of phasic skin conductance or resistance changes in response to psychological stimuli.
