Abstract : To extend the studies of GSR activity, an automatic analyzer was designed and a prototype system was built and tested. The analyzer measures the sum of onset-to-peak amplitudes, sum of the onset-to-peak times, and the number of GSR's per epoch. The analyzer reduces the data at a rate equal to generation of the GSR activity, and it is expected that faster than real time analysis can be accomplished with a tape recording system and some modification of the analyzer. With the automatic analyzer, studies can be carried out with immediate data reduction which should aid in defining the relations between the parameters of GSR activity and the level of arousal in psychophysiologic studies.(Author)
