 +===== Summary =====
 +**Galvanic skin response** (or **GSR**), also known as //​electrodermal response (EDR)// or //​psychogalvanic reflex (PGR)//, is a method of measuring the electrical resistance of the skin and interpreting it as an image of activity in certain parts of the body.
 +
 +GSR is conducted by attaching two leads to the skin, and acquiring a base measure. Then, as the activity being studied is performed, recordings are made from the leads. There are two ways to perform a GSR - in active GSR, current is passed through the body, with the resistance measured. In passive GSR, current generated by the body itself is measured.
