Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In normal young adults electrical characteristics of the skin were studied in five different regions. The results obtained have demonstrated presence of topographic differences of the external resistance as well as impedance. It does not seem that these differences can be correlated with the thickness at the corneal layer, but rather with the different glandular composition from one region to another and probably with the different hydration state of the skin. There were also demonstrated differences between sexes, characterized by a lower external resistance in males than in females.
