Wearable-Based Measurement of Skin Conductance: Issues and Applications

Date: Jan 18, 2023 

Speaker: Susanna Spinsante. Università Politecnica delle Marche

Abstract: Starting from some background information about the physiology of skin conductance, and the information encoded in skin conductance signals, the talk will present the wearable devices currently available to acquire this signal, and the associate measurement issues. Finally, an overview of applications exploiting the use of wearables and the processing of skin conductance to understand human reactions and behaviour, will be provided.

Biography: Susanna Spinsante is currently an Associate Professor in Electrical and Electronic Measurements at the Information Engineering Department of Università Politecnica delle Marche (Ancona, Italy). Her research interests are in the field of electronic measurements, instrumentation and metrological issues in IoT and wearable applications. She is IEEE Senior Member and Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurements.
