    Abstract

    The use of electrodermal activity (EDA) has become the most widely used measure in psychophysiological studies and has been identified as perhaps the best general index of autonomic activity [Dawson et al 1990]. Recent work in near-infrared (NIR) technology, however, has made possible the development of another psychophysiological recording device that may match EDA as a general index of autonomic arousal.
