What does a high level mean? A low level?
A level of skin conductance that is higher than an individual’s usual level or baseline reflects situational levels of arousal/activation or responsiveness/attentiveness. The situation could be one that induces stress or interest or excitement or any activity that requires increased level of emotion, cognition, or brain activity. In contrast, a low level can mean relaxation, and lack of activation, whether good or bad (calm and at peace, or disengaged/bored).
