Electrical resistance of skin was studied with the aid of a specially designed meter that compared the resistance per surface area of small skin points with that of the surrounding skin.

The low-resistance skin points had diametres of 1.5 +/- 0.5 mm and their borders were abrupt. On… CONTINUE READING
