Stress Detection Using Galvanic Skin Response With Affective Impact Of Different Climate Conditions
Emotional arousal such as stress, fear, anger, happiness, excitement, and startle response induce sweat secretion from the skin which changes the skin’s conductivity. The change in these electrical characteristics of skin brought on by changes in a person's physiological and psychological state is measured by the galvanic skin response. It may serve as a physiological marker for stress and emotion. Negative stress can lead to health problems like depression, anxiety, and neurological conditions like stroke. Therefore, it is essential to measure one's degree of stress so that it can be controlled before it is uninhabited. Even though there are quite a few methods that can measure stress levels, there is a need to study the effect of different psychological conditions such as cognitive load, fear, happiness, etc., and methods for reducing stress levels such as meditation. It is also crucial to study the effects of environmental conditions on the electrodermal response of the skin. Therefore, in this research galvanic skin response of different subjects under different phycological conditions is investigated. The novelty of this study is that the impact of different climate conditions such as ambient temperature on galvanic skin response has been studied. The change in GSR levels in different individuals at different cognitive load levels and the effect of different kinds of emotions are investigated.
