  • Various dysfunctions in electrodermal activity (EDA) have been found in schizophrenic patients. The present paper reviews evidence that the electrodermal dysfunctions may carry prognostic information regarding subsequent symptoms, as well as social and occupational outcome. Although the findings are not entirely consistent, heightened electrodermal activity as indicated by frequent orienting responses to innocuous stimuli, elevated skin conductance level (SCL), and frequent non-specific skin… CONTINUE READING
