Skin conductance response (SCR) are the fast portions found in the decomposition of the EDA signal. They are then superimposed onto the Skin Conductance Level (click link to see what the SCL is).

Conventionally [1]–[3], SCR is classified via the following criterion:

• An increase in EDA of at least $0.05\mu S$ over a period of $1 - 3$ seconds

• Immediately after this increase, there should be seen a gradual decrease in EDA over $3 - 15$ seconds to what value (or level) was recorded before the SCR event
