Characterisation of human skin conductance at acupuncture points.
Pharma Clinical Research, F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG, Basel, Switzerland.
Some physicians use the electrical conductance of the skin, particularly at the acupuncture points, for diagnostic purposes. This paper deals with the quantification of the skin conductance at some acupuncture points under well defined conditions using the electrode materials gold, graphite, silver and brass. The observed current response appeared to be best described by two exponentials.
