Electrodermal Response

Electrodermal response or EDR, is a type of limited sensory output that can be used to help detect changes in a participant?s emotional state, as an interface method for a virtual environment. The electrodermal response is essentially a change in the electrical resistance of the person?s skin that occurs a few milliseconds after the person has experienced an emotional state change, mentally. Currently, no method exists to determine which emotional state is now in charge.

EDR is also known as galvanic skin response, psychogalvanic reflex and skin conductance response. All four terms refer to the same thing.
