OBJECTIVE Recent work on arousal vs. activation in adults showed that skin conductance levels (SCLs) increased, and global alpha levels decreased, from eyes-closed to eyes-open resting baseline conditions. This study explored whether similar effects occur in children. METHODS EEG activity was recorded from 30 children aged 8-12 years during counterbalanced eyes-closed and eyes-open resting conditions; SCL was measured as an index of arousal. RESULTS SCLs were negatively correlated with mean… CONTINUE READING
